Full Answer

Lexia Learning helps students learn reading on individual levels and provides home access if it is used in schools. Lexia Learning provides three programs: Lexia Reading, Lexia Reading Core5, and Lexia Strategies. Each program can be downloaded for desktop use at home, which allows parents to interact with the teacher.

A Compact for Reading is a series of books that were created in service of an agreement between teachers, students, and parents that encourages students to become good readers by setting and achieving reading goals.

IXL Math & Language Arts offers programs for math and reading topics for K-12. IXL offers home and school membership, which provides insight into the student's progress and rewards the student for doing well. One program offered by PBS Learning Media is Math at the Core: Middle School. Both IXL and Math at the Core align with the Common Core State Standards. The collection of resources was created by public media producers.
