Lexile levels are now being used to better help your child to be reading on his/her appropriate reading level. Teachers are now determining Lexile levels for each student through a variety of assessments. In the media center, Lexile levels are beginning to appear on many books. Students (and parents) are able to search for the lexile level of a book they are reading. Hopefully, this will make it a bit easier for students to select books that are reading level appropriate for them.
