The Pikes Peak BOCES and BOCES East will be hosting Lexia training in November. Description as follows:

Teachers will learn how to effectively use data from myLexia to help drive instruction with students.  Teachers will analyze classroom data to identify students most at risk, meet usage goals, and review Lexia instructional materials for targeted intervention.  Teachers will understand how to use this data in a blended learning environment to best support their students and help make teachers feel less overwhelmed in preparing lessons and activities for differentiation.  Our session will focus on data for both Core5 and Power Up and the reports that are beneficial for teachers.
