Student Capacity

Each of the Renaissance Place products you have registered at your school has a student capacity. The student capacity is the number of students who can use the product during the subscription period or during the school year. Capacity is used when a student performs a task in the product, such as taking an Accelerated Reader quiz or a Star test.

Capacity (the student limit) is purchased for each individual school; however, if schools purchase the software together, they can pool their capacity. This is called School Network Shared capacity. School Network Shared capacity is only available when all schools are on the same Renaissance Place site and the product license types (models) and subscription dates match. In a School Network Shared capacity situation, the subscriptions are treated as a single pool, and any school that is sharing the capacity can use those seats on a first-come, first-served basis.

School Network Shared capacity has no effect on subscription usage—a student uses a subscription seat in each school in which the student logs in and works in the product.

Students may be enrolled in more than one school and may use the same product in each school. These students will be counted toward the capacity limit for each school where they use a product (for example, if they take an Accelerated Reader quiz or a Star test).
