What Is Renaissance Home Connect?
Renaissance Home Connect is connecting parents and extending practice. Renaissance Home Connect improves the school-to-home connection by allowing parents and students to log in to a website and view the student’s reading and maths practice and progress towards targets. Access to online results promotes discussion between parents and students, which motivates students and can make reading and maths practice even more effective. In addition, parents can specify up to six email addresses to receive automatic updates on their child’s maths and reading progress.
Two steps are required to get Renaissance Home Connect up and running:
- On the Home page, a school network administrator or school network staff member clicks Renaissance Home Connect, then Manage Availability and follows the instructions.
- Once Renaissance Home Connect is available on the Home page, teachers click Renaissance Home Connect, then Reports and print the Informational Letter to be sent home with the student.
Renaissance Home Connect is accessible to Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Maths Live and MathsFacts in a Flash customers.
