In 2015, Lexia Learning announced a strategic partnership with researchers from the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) focusing on research and innovation in the area of language and literacy assessment. Hoosac is gearing up this year with Lexia PowerUp Literacy. It is a program designed to help students in grades 6 and above become proficient readers and confident learners. How?

Lexia PowerUp Literacy allows students to work at their own pace to develop skills essential to success in both literacy and content-area learning. After automatically placing students at just the right level, PowerUp guides students through an expertly crafted scope and sequence.

In PowerUp, students are automatically placed at the proper skill level where they can work independently. Through a system of explicit instruction, adaptive learning, and scaffolding, PowerUp gradually releases responsibility to students as they demonstrate greater proficiency.
