The Read-Up program is a reading incentive program that utilizes the Accelerated Reader software. This supplemental individualized reading program is designed to motivate students to read and to nurture a love of reading. After selecting and reading books that are on the Read-Up list, students take a computerized test and, if they meet the minimal criteria, earn points.
The program maintains a record of each student's performance and accumulated points. As students soar higher they move to different levels and are awarded with recognition and incentives.
