Welcome to Our AWESome Media Center!

Accelerated Reader

 

 

Students focus to meet their 85% AR reading practice goal.

An online version Accelerated Reader software is available at elementary and middle schools in the Douglas County School System.  This version of AR allows students to access nearly 150,000 AR tests in an updated and user friendly web-based version of the software.  In AR, students have individual reading goals based on their own academic needs. 


Parents and families can track student progress in AR by going to https://hosted237.renlearn.com/50109/HomeConnect/.  You will need your student's login and password to access this account.  If you'd 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, add homeconnectautodelivery@renlearnrp.com to your address book.

 

You can check and see if books you own have AR tests by going to http://www.arbookfind.com/UserType.aspx 

 

We look forward to a great year of reading practice with the Accelerated Reader Enterprise from Renaissance Learning.

Do not meet someone or have them visit you without the permission of your parents.

Tell your parents right away if you read anything on the Internet that makes you feel uncomfortable.
