myLexia Access
If you’ve experienced myLexia access issues recently, we’ve identified the problem and hope to have everyone’s access restored as early as tomorrow/Thursday. Please rest assured that your myLexia account is still receiving your students’ data, even if you haven’t been able to access your teacher-account.

In the last several weeks, DreamBox has seen an increase in iPad app errors.  While we were hopeful that these errors would be resolved by the new year, that’s not the case. DreamBox has identified the problems, and the DreamBox team will be fixing these problems in the next 2-3 weeks.  If you’d like to contact DreamBox Support, to report any future problems, please do so:  DreamBox Support.
