WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis.

The offerings range from customizable toolkits to on-demand webinars to virtual professional development options.
To help navigate remote learning together, several Renaissance programs can be used at home over the summer months:
- Accelerated Reader provides more than 200,000 quiz titles to choose from, so students can continue to grow as lifelong readers throughout the summer.
- Freckle Premium helps students build their math, ELA, social studies, and science skills through engaging practice and activities.
- myON provides students 24/7 access to thousands of digital books and age-appropriate news articles.
Educators can gain insight into their students’ reading and math progress virtually through reports and unlimited access to supplementary assignments. To further support district leaders and educators who are grappling with student learning loss, Renaissance is offering on-demand webinars that detail best practices for each program and tips for this summer.
