Want to get the best outcomes from your Renaissance practice and assessment solutions? Looking to highlight your students’ incredible literacy and math achievements? Join us for Renaissance National Honor Roll.

What is Renaissance National Honor Roll?

Renaissance National Honor Roll recognizes teachers, librarians, and school administrators across the nation utilizing Renaissance solutions to their fullest and, in turn, seeing measurable student growth.

From September to March, five best practice learning series are published in the Renaissance Educator Network (formerly Renaissance Royals). We’re excited to announce that we’ve added a new learning series for Lalilo for the 2023–2024 school year! The learning series are designed to help empower your teaching and improve your implementations of Accelerated Reader, Freckle for math, Lalilo, myON, and Star Assessments. Each series contains 7 activities, which are like bite-sized chunks of professional learning. You’re encouraged to start early in the school year to get the most benefit. Completing each activity gives access to the next as it becomes available the following month.

Participating in Honor Roll also provides a natural environment to engage in collaboration with fellow educators via the Renaissance Educator Network, a community designed just for you. Educators using Renaissance solutions can join the Renaissance Educator Network to discuss teaching strategies and experience different activities. It’s free and a great resource.

  2. Complete the monthly Honor Roll activities throughout the school year and submit your data to demonstrate you’ve followed the prescribed best practices.

More than 300 educators participated in Honor Roll and were recognized during the 2022–2023 school year. While everyone participates in Honor Roll for different reasons, these educators agree that having the strategies to effectively use their Renaissance products benefits everyone, especially their students.

Educators comment on Honor Roll

Participating in the Accelerated Reader National Honor Roll allows me to learn about reports that I may not have been familiar with using. The monthly challenges allow you to explore the program and learn ways to use the program to the fullest extent possible.

Marianne Gaskins, Librarian, South Carolina

I would recommend Renaissance National Honor Roll to any teachers who use Renaissance products with their students. It provides the opportunity to learn about the new Renaissance resources available to schools and teachers. I especially enjoy being able to communicate with fellow educators and share ideas about how we implement the different programs and resources in our classrooms.

If you have never participated in the National Honor Roll, I would recommend that you do. You get to know what is available to you and learn about how others have used the products in their classroom. The resources are great and help you to learn how to manage your students’ learning.

Honor Roll starts on September 15, so head over to the Renaissance Educator Network and get started!
