Lexia programs offer schools a powerful tool to support students in their journey towards reading proficiency. However, the successful implementation of such programs relies heavily on a structured and goal-oriented approach.
In this blog post, we explore the significance of setting goals when implementing Lexia in schools and provide practical tips for sharing and achieving these goals across your school.
Why Set Implementation Goals?
Clarity of Purpose: Setting clear goals provides a roadmap for teachers and administrators, ensuring everyone understands the purpose and expected outcomes of Lexia in school. Clearly defined goals act as a guide, aligning the efforts of the school community towards a common objective.
Measurable Progress: Goals should be measurable to track and evaluate the progress of students and the effectiveness of any intervention program. Establishing specific benchmarks allows teachers to identify areas of success and areas that may need adjustment, fostering continuous improvement.
Motivation and Accountability: Goals create a sense of purpose and motivation among educators and students alike. When progress is measurable and celebrated, it fosters a positive environment and a sense of achievement. Additionally, clearly communicated goals enhance accountability, encouraging everyone across school to take ownership of their roles in the implementation process.
3 Practical Tips for Goal-Setting
Set Goals Collaboratively – Involve teachers, administrators and support staff in the goal setting process. This ensures that your goals reflect the diverse perspectives of everyone in the school community.
SMART Goals – Ensure that goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound (SMART). For example, a SMART goal for Lexia Implementation could be, “By the end of Spring Term, the proportion of pupils reaching their usage targets on Lexia will be over 70%.”
Regular Progress Monitoring: Establish a system for regular progress monitoring. Whether through weekly check-ins or monthly assessments, consistent monitoring allows staff to adjust strategies in real-time and address any challenges that may arise during the implementation process.
