BOSTON (Dec. 13, 2017) – Research suggests that 66 percent of eighth-grade students in the United States cannot read proficiently. To help schools and districts address this crisis and help close the achievement gap for low-performing students in grades six and above, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE: RST) Company, will host a webinar on January 10 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).

Leading the conversation will be Dr. Suzanne Carreker, CALT-QI, the principal educational content lead at Lexia Learning who will use the Simple View of Reading to explain why identifying and addressing the diverse needs of non-proficiency can be complex, but is not impossible with the right tools.

Webinar attendees will learn about:

·The diverse and complex causes of non-proficient adolescent literacy

·Adolescent learner profiles and how assessment informs their instruction

·Solutions for helping non-proficient adolescent readers prepare for college and career

Dr. Carreker spearheaded the curriculum design of Lexia’s soon-to-be released reading program for adolescents. Before joining Lexia in 2015, Dr. Carreker worked for 28 years at Neuhaus Education Center, a nonprofit organization offering professional development in evidence-based reading methods to more than 60,000 teachers.

There is no cost to join the webinar, but registration is required. For more information, please go to http://bit.ly/2BdCAlt. Registrants will receive an on-demand recording of the webinar after the event.

Iowa School Districts Add Lexia Reading Core5 to Address Literacy Needs of Students and Support Legislated Requirements for Progression in Reading

Council Bluffs and Davenport the Latest Districts to Use Lexia’s Program to Meet Requirements of Chapter 62, Accelerate Reading Gains and Close Achievement Gaps   BOSTON (April 6, 2015) – By the end of 2017, the State of Iowa is requiring that third-graders must be reading at or above grade-level or they will face the prospect of an intensive summer school program or repeat the third grade. To meet this mandate and boost the performance of its struggling readers while improving the reading proficiency of all students, Council Bluffs Community School District (Iowa) has chosen to implement Lexia Reading® Core5®. In addition, Davenport Community School District has expanded its use of the research-proven reading program from use in grades K-3 to all students in grades K-5, district-wide. A number of schools in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids join a host of districts including West Burlington, Algona, Spencer, Albia, Mt. Ayre, and Oakland in either implementing Lexia Reading Core5 as part of their personalized reading program or broadly expanding their use of the program this year.
