The purpose of flexible library time is to allow students/teachers to access the library media center when they need it for reading materials or for research. Classroom teachers may send up to 3 students at a time from their rooms. A pass of some type should be carried by the student for safety reasons.
If individuals/small groups are coming for research purposes, then a copy of their research assignment should be sent with them to assist with the research process. If a large group of students all from one class needs to use the library media center during flexible time, teachers may bring them and supervise them as they use the library during these times.
Renaissance Enterprise offers our students access to the AR and STAR programs through the Internet. Our students have access to every AR quiz available (100,000+). Every time new AR quizzes are released our students automatically have access to the new quizzes. As our students look for books at the Mobile County Public Library, at the local bookstores, or at home they will be able to use the link below to check the title to see if there is an AR quiz available and to see if the book level is within their reading range. Students will still only have permission to test from computers at school. However, we are encouraging them to use our school library, the public library, and their home libraries to locate even more good books to read. Each quarter our students are reading and quizzing to increase their reading skills and reach their individual AR goals.
Check your books here to see if there is an AR quiz available and to see the book level. www.arbookfind.com

We untilize STAR Early Literacy(K-2), STAR Reading, and STAR Math to screen all of our students at least three times each school year. All of the programs are a part of Rensaissance Enterprise and are computer-based testing tools. We use the data from the testing to monitor the growth of our students.
