How to access Lexia

Rhianon Gutierrez Updated by Rhianon Gutierrez

What is Lexia?

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. 

All schools with K-8 grades have access to Lexia. By default, all ELA classes in grades K-5 have access to Core5 and grades 6-8 have access to PowerUp. PowerUp may be used by English learners in grades 9-12 by submitting the Clever Access & App Integration Request Form to add your ESL sections.
Students and staff should be rostered over to myLexia from Aspen and not be manually added in myLexia. If you notice that students are missing in myLexia but have classes in Aspen, please email the student ID to to have their access restored.

What is Core5 and 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. 

What is PowerUp and 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.
