Ending the School Year Right

Just a few steps will help you finish up the 2017-18 year strong and get ready for an even better 2018-19!

Print Your Reports for the Current School Year


If you would like to have a snapshot of this year’s data, framed in the context of the current grade and class structure, you need to print out final reports for the school year before your new school year begins in Renaissance. If you don’t run the reports now, you won’t be able to get the data later. Take the time to make sure you’re capturing your school’s results.

Accelerated Reader Printing Recommendations:

  1. Goal History Report – This report is great to capture each student’s Accelerated Reader goals for the year.
  2. Schoolwide Summary Report – This report provides you with a class, grade or group view of students’ performance on Accelerated Reader quizzes over a specific period of time.
  3. Any reports you are running for recognizing goals or end of year celebration.

Star Assessment Printing Recommendations:

  1. Star Screening Report
  2. Instructional Planning – Student
  3. Student Progress Monitoring
  4. Growth Report with SGP

Set Up the Next School Year within Renaissance


To ensure a smooth transition into the next school year, we encourage your site administrator to make sure that the new school year is created before the current school year ends.

After you've created the school year, you will need to create marking periods, create courses/classes and enroll students. Today, you can do this manually with new step-by-step set-up wizards. The ability to copy classes and marking periods from the current school year into the new school year is coming soon to help make this process easier for you.
