South Bay Union School District, Imperial Beach, California: Informational Report on Accelerated Reader.
School Renaissance Inst., Inc., Madison, WI.
This informational report on Accelerated Reader, a learning information system which provides educators with accurate, current data for every student in every class, was submitted to the superintendent of South Bay Union School District in Imperial Beach, California by the assistant superintendent. The report documents the academic gains made in reading as a result of the adoption of the School Renaissance Academic Improvement Process over the 1999-2000 school year. The document is divided into two sections: the independent report, just mentioned and public records. The document is reading, spelling, and language arts Stanford 9 scores, district Academic Performance Index (API) information, and demographic profiles by school. The Stanford 9 scores demonstrate the significant growth achieved by every school in the district since adopting the School Renaissance Academic Improvement Process. The report explains that Reading Renaissance is the reading component of School Renaissance as it motivates students to read, increases the amount of time students spend practicing reading, helps teachers effectively guide student reading practice, and also helps teachers place students in what is called their zone of proximal development or ZOD.
