See your student's progress at HOME!







Students and families love reading!  An improved version of the Accelerated Reader software is now available at elementary and middle schools in the Douglas County School System.  This version of AR allows students at school to access nearly 150,000 AR tests in an updated and user friendly web-based version of the software. 


Your student uses a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called “Renaissance Home Connect”, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection.


Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows you and the teacher to share information about your child’s progress in Accelerated Reader.


You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. For a list of compatible browsers, type or copy/ paste the following URL into any browser search window:


For User Name: You will then type in your child’s regular computer login at school. The school User Name is typed into the first box (child’s first and last initials plus child’s student ID number):


For Password: You will type in your child’s birthdate as numbers into the second box.






Here is a Username for a child named Abigail Bone with an ID of 123456:  


Username: AB123456


Abigail was born on August 3, 2007:


Password: 080307

If you'd like to receive emails showing your student's quiz or test results, click the Email Setup link in Renaissance Home Connect and follow the directions. To be sure these emails reach your inbox, add to your address book.


If you have questions about Renaissance Home Connect, please contact your student's teacher.


AR Note: If you  want to know if a particular book has an AR test, there is a web site (AR BookFinder) to enter the title or author to find out if an AR test is available.  You will also be able to note the AR test/quiz number and the level of the book.

We look forward to a great year of reading practice with Accelerated Reader Enterprise from Renaissance Learning.
