Accelerated Reader Program
Because reading research indicates that sustained monitored practice improves reading ability, 9th and 10th graders read for 45 minutes each day.- 15 minutes in each of their block periods. The program is managed by their Language Arts teacher and accounts for 20% of their Language Arts grade. Apopka High School’s Accelerated Reader program is now on a web-based hosted site called Renaissance Place. This site allows students to access 125,000 tests.
