Professional development

Professional development for site license schools

With each site license purchase, schools receive one web training per year. Our training team will design a custom session tailored to each school's needs, resources, and interests. In addition, a dedicated IXL account manager is always available to support teachers and administrators with technical and instructional support. The IXL professional services team is an invaluable resource for our site license customers.
