Kansas Reading Initiative Results Announced

Lexia Learning today announced year-end results from the Kansas Reading Initiative. Among the students participating in the statewide initiative, over 11,000 students used Core5 at recommended levels during the 2013–2014 school year. Of those students, the percentage meeting their grade level benchmark increased from 45% to 70%.

More than 2,000 students were considered to be at-risk of not meeting grade level end-of-year benchmarks, but by the end of the school year, 99% of these readers mastered more than one year of content, and 87% advanced two or more grade levels.
