All students at Sacred Heart School are enrolled in Accelerated Reader. To use the program effectively, each student must must know his or her individual reading zone, or levels of books they are comfortable reading. This zone is determined in large part by the results of a STAR test given to each student on the iPad three to four times a year. The STAR test also helps classroom teachers narrow down skills that should be focused on for language arts instruction. Once the student's zone is determined, goals are set within Accelerated Reader for each quarter.
