Welcome Back to School!

Summer School is Alive With the Sights and Sounds of Google! 

"AR" is
not a Computer Reading Program

Accelerated Reader’s enduring message of the past 25 years is echoed in the Common Core State Standard’s call to “markedly increase the opportunity for regular independent reading of texts that appeal to students’ interests to develop both their knowledge and joy in reading.” In fact, no other program has impacted independent reading more positively than AR.


  1. Teachers should monitor a student's progress with AR daily.
  2. Students should maintain a percentage correct of 90% or better for best results.
  3. If a child has a percentage correct of 80% or below, and he/she is failing most tests, they might be doing more harm than good.
  4. Parents: Check your child's progress at home. Have your child login to AR as they do at school. Check their report. Talk to your child's teacher if you have a concern. They should be progressing towards their point goal, and for best results, they should be getting 100% on most of their tests

The following guides and resources are available to get the best out of AR:

Parent Resources (Awesome!)
Teacher Resources and "AR and the CC Standards" (New!)
AR Book Finder (Great tool!)
Using AR Book Finder to Find CC "Exemplars"
AR and the CC Standards (PDF)
