FOLLOW YOUR STUDENT'S READING PROGRESS
Your student uses a software program calledAccelerated Reader (AR) at school. Accelerated Reader allows your student to read books at their level and then take a quiz to show they understand what they have read. As a award for their efforts, your student earns points. The system also tracks the total number of words they have read.
This program has a special featured called Renaissance Home Connect, which your student and you can access outside of school from any computer with an internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, your student and you to share information about their progress in Accelerated Reader.
You can view Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with internet connection. To log you will need your student's user name and password, which they should know. If not, connect their teacher for this information.
If you would like to receive emails showing your student's quiz or test results, click the Email Setup link in Renaissance Home Connect and follow the directions. To be sure these emails reach your inbox, firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book.
If you have questions about Accelerated Reader or Home Connect, please contact your student's teacher or school.
Thanks for being a partner in your student's success!
