Accelerated Reader

The Accelerated Reader program is a computerized program that testsreading comprehension. Students select books on their reading level,read independently, and take an independent comprehension test on the computer. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level.

Bay Elementary School participates in the Accelerated Reader program.  Media Specialist Heather O'Toole coordinates the schoolwide program and supports teachers with classroom implementation.  The program provides incentives and rewards in the classroom as well as schoolwide to encourage students to READ, READ, READ!  During the 2015-16 school year, Bay students read and successfully test with an 80% or above over 14,000 books which is an average of 36 books per student!  We want to beat this reading record in 2016-17!
