Lexia Usage

Please see the Lexia usage report below. How close are your students on meeting their goals each week? If students are not meeting their minimum minutes they will not show adequate growth. Great job to Ms. Burt who has many students on track and making progress!! Remember to check the reports when you log in for usage. Also, the program is assigning many small group lessons for individual students. How regularly are you completing these lessons? Let's make the most of this program in the end of the year.
