The Vacaville Unified School District offers many technology resources for its staff, students and families.
Accelerated Reader is a computerized guided reading program designed to build interest in reading. It quizzes students on books they have read, testing their understanding of the book.
All Vacaville schools subscribe to the Enterprise version of Accelerated Reader, giving students access to more than 125,000 quizzes. Use the free AR BookFinder service to find the level of nearly any book.
AR Home Connect
Students and parents can view daily progress in Accelerated Reader through Home Connect and even sign up for email alerts when a child takes an AR test at school. Use the Home Connect link at left to get started. Parents will need the child's user name and password for RenPlace. Contact your child's teacher if the child does not know the login information. For more information see the Home Connect Parent Guide (also available in Spanish.)
Students can log on to Destiny using their ID number and birthdate (same as many other programs) to see items checked out in the library, or put books on hold. At many schools, textbooks are also checked out to individual students through Destiny. Log on and click the MY Info tab to get started.
VUSD Web Index and Student Links
The VUSD Web Index lists and commonly used websites in classrooms. The sites are sorted by subject, making it easy for students to see the same sites they use at school.
