Gilbert Public Schools currently uses Renaissance Place, Enterprise version. Accelerated Reader and other Renaissance programs are accessible online.
The Accelerated Reading program engages students in independent reading practice outside of the classroom.
Students choose their own books based on goals and levels set by their teacher. After reading their books, students independently complete short reading practice quizzes to check that they understood what they read, and then monitor their own reading progress.
