MetaMetrics (developer of The Lexile Framework for Reading) proudly announced its partnership with KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program). Serving more than 32,000 students, KIPP’s renowned network is constituted by 109 open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools. 85% of the students attending these schools—which are located in 20 states and the District of Columbia—are from low-income families. This exciting, new partnership offers training on the value and use of Lexile measures for educators in the KIPP network.
Teaming up, MetaMetrics and KIPP move closer to achieving their shared education goals—the college and career readiness of all students as defined by the Common Core State Standards. “Our goal is to give our students the knowledge and skills they need to get to and through college,” said KIPP CEO Richard Barth. “Lexile measures are a valuable tool for our teachers to monitor our students’ reading growth at every stage, to make sure they are all college- and career-ready.”
By certifying KIPP facilitators to conduct workshops on how to utilize Lexile measures, KIPP teachers will now better differentiate instruction and monitor students’ reading growth. For more information on this exciting partnership, click here.
