Learning Lab

Welcome to Learning Lab We're glad you're here! 

Zion District 6 has implemented an instructional support class within grades Kindergarten - Grade 8 to provide focused academic instruction for students.

Learning Lab Curriculum

  • Reading Horizons-Discovery (Grade K-2)
  • Voyager Passports (Grades 3-5)
  • Voyager Language Live (Grades 6-8)

Criteria for Learning Lab Participation


The previous year's Spring benchmark screening assessment Percentile Rank (PR) scores are evaluated to identify student participants. Current year Fall and Winter PR scores are also reviewed.

*The Percentile Rank (PR) ranges from 1-99 and compares student performance to other students in the same grade nationwide.

A defined curriculum has been procured for this class. Certified staff is provided intensive training to deliver instruction with the use of the curricular materials. Learning Lab is provided in addition to students' core curriculum, therefore students receive additional instruction to strengthen his/her reading skills. Learning Lab is a component of our Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS). Specified time within the school day is dedicated to MTSS instruction. Within grades 6-8, in lieu of participation in elective programming, students in need of MTSS will attend Learning Lab.
