Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader is an important tool at Omega School to motivate students to read and comprehend books. AR is a computer software program published by Renaissance Learning. Students read a book geared to their reading level, and then take a comprehensive quiz on the computer. Students must pass the quiz to earn points; the number of points assigned to a book is based on the book’s length and difficulty level.Students are rewarded for earning AR points in many ways throughout the year. Students may spend their points at the AR store to purchase prizes. Students also earn a pizza party by taking tests and earning at least 5 points during the summer at the AR center. Parents can help us earn money by passing a test on at least a 1/2 point book. Omega School earns money from The Tift County Foundation for Educational Excellence for student, adult, and staff participation. In addition the Foundation awards $.10 for every point earned for the school.Discuss books your child is reading, and above all, let your child see that you value reading.
