Lost or damaged books
Polk County School Board policy states that if any books are lost or damaged beyond repair, then parents are responsible for paying for them. Due to this policy, the obligation will follow your child all the way to the 12th grade. It could prohibit your child from participating in extra-curricular activities and even marching in graduation. Please contact the media specialist, if you have any questions.
Accelerated Reader Quizzes
The Accelerated Reading Program (AR) is a reading
comprehension program designed to monitor
student’s comprehension while encouraging them to read. Students take the STAR test to determine
their reading level. Each student is given a goal to work towards. As each student reads a book
on their reading level and takes a test they are given points toward their goal.
Renaissance Home Connect is designed for parents to be involved by connecting from home
to make personalized reading practice even more effective. By using Home Connect, students
and parents are able to:
• See progress towards reading goal.
• Conduct book searches. (www.arbookfind.com)
• Review AR quiz results.
• View number of books read.
