Truckee Elementary's students have been ulilizing Lexia Core 5 Reading across grade levlels with motivation and success. Reductions and shifts in funding since we purchased the multi-year site-wide license last year are causing us to apply for this grant in order to keep this resource benefitting our students. We are asking for Excellence in Education to approve a grant that will allow for a one-year unlimited use of this standard-based, district and state curriculum-aligned software program. Our 515 K-5 students will receive engaging, interactive, research-based reading instruction. Automated student management tools (assessment, evaluation, report generation) will provide staff with immediate feedback to students and staff on the progress in the reading curriculum.
The software individualizes and supports reading comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and phonological awareness.
Other funding sources
We will use site funds to cover the hosting and support fees after the first 3 years. Special Education has already funded 10 licenses. If we are unsuccessful if obtaining funding for the remaining 10 licenses we will run the program with only 20 licenses.
