DISTRICT RESULTS FROM DR. SEUSS READ-A-THON . . . Yakima School District students from 10 elementaries and 1 middle school* participated in “Read the Most From Coast to Coast,” on March 2, Dr. Seuss’s birthday.  They became part of an elite group – students from across the nation who broke the record for the number of AR quizzes taken in one day:  3,581,992.   The one-day quiz total for all YSD schools was 4,426 books read and quizzes taken!  This national reading event challenges students to shatter the national one-day record for Accelerated Reader (AR) quiz-taking – last year’s record was over 2 million!  Accelerated Reader, a reading management software program for K-12 schools, helps educators measure and improve reading comprehension levels.  Students read a book at the appropriate level and then take a quiz on a computer.  The quiz assesses general comprehension of the book just read.  AR scores the quiz, monitors results, generates reports, and provides a platform to manage individual reading practice. *Adams, Garfield, Hoover, M.L. King, Jr., McClure, McKinley, Nob Hill, Roosevelt, Ridgeview, and Whitney elementaries and Lewis & Clark Middle School.
