Renaissance Home Connect improves the school-to-home connection by allowing parents and students to log in to a Web site and view the student’s reading practice and progress towards goals. Access to online results promotes discussion between parents and students, which motivates students and can make reading practice even more effective. In addition, parents can specify up to six email addresses to receive automatic updates in English or Spanish on their student’s reading progress.
