IXL is utilized as part of math instruction to help students practice and review skills that they are learning in the classroom. Math skills are broken down by grade level and into skill categories. Each student has an account and throughout the week they use the program to practice and improve in math. As they work, students receive a score that increases or decreases based their level of success with the given skill. Teachers can monitor student progress and use this information to help inform their instruction.
Google Classroom is used in Grades 3-5 across subject areas. Teachers assign work which students can access through their Lynchburg City Schools Google account.
