What is Lexia Core5? Who has access?

Lexia Core5 Reading provides a systematic and structured approach to six critical areas of reading. The program creates personalized learning paths for students of all abilities through an adaptive placement and scaffolded activities that align to rigorous standards.

Usage is recommended by the platform individually for each student. 
All BPS students in grades K2 to 5 have access to Lexia Core5 until at least June 30, 2020.

What is Lexia PowerUp?  Who has access?

Lexia PowerUp Literacy is designed to accelerate literacy gains for struggling and non-proficient readers in grades 6 and above. The program addresses literacy skills aligned to college and career readiness standards for grades 6–8, while teaching the specific K–5 standards that are critical to building a foundation for grade-level proficiency. The program is broken up into three distinct strands that students work in concurrently: Word Study, Grammar, and Comprehension.

Usage is recommended by the platform individually for each student. 
All BPS students in grades 6 and above have access to PowerUp until at least June 30, 2020. The program is recommended for high school students who are struggling readers, and it may be used through grade 12.

How do I use Lexia Core5/PowerUp?

Lexia Core5 and PowerUp offer the opportunity for students to engage in asynchronous practice of reading skills personalized to their learning needs. Students will take a placement assessment upon initially logging into the system and will be provided with a recommended number of minutes per week to spend working in the program in order to make learning gains. In their MyLexia app in Clever, teachers can monitor that students are meeting recommended usage minutes, and teachers may follow up with families to encourage that students meet their minutes. Teachers may also track student progress in MyLexia in order to see how students are developing their skills over time.
