Parents and Guardians As a means of supporting our families with using Lexia Reading at Home, an important tool our students use to help increase their reading capacity, the company is offering “FREE” webinars just for parents and guardians who are at home helping to fill in the gaps during times. In these webinars, Professional Learning Facilitators will instruct families of K-8 learners on how to: Get set up and started (your student should already have an account). Support children's learning at home. Track progress and extend learning.
The August Johnston County Board of Education meeting will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 11 in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
