Learning @ Home
Peoria Public Schools is proud to offer expanded services beyond the classroom, for students and families to utilize at home, the library or anywhere an internet connection is available.
Take a tour of Compass Learning and find out how students can utilize this tool as an enrichment or remediation activity. Compass Learning challenges students by meeting them where they are at, based on NWEA and other standardized testing. Parents can also access Compass Learning using their own username and password (provided by your child's school) to check in and see what progress the student is making in the online program, both at home and at school. All Peoria Public Schools' students have access to this great learning tool and information can be obtained by calling your child's school!
All Peoria Public Schools' students, K-12, have access to Type to Learn, an online typing toolkit to assist students as they learn to type. For 2013-2014 school year, the district is providing Type to Learn 4 (web) for all students to learn typing. This program can be run on district computers and from home computers.  Typing is an important part of our digital society, plus many of our state tests are moving to online tests, which will require typing skills.

All Peoria Public Schools' students, K-8, have access to Renaissance Place Accelerated Reader (AR). Go to the website above to view your student's AR progress.  Be sure to check out My Bookshelf to see all the books your child has taken AR quizzes on.  You may also set up e-mails to be sent to you every time your child takes an AR quiz.  Just log in with the name and password your child uses to take AR quizzes or contact your child's school for more information. You may also go to AR BookFinder to search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books. You will then be able to sort your search results, select book titles to add to your AR BookBag, print a list of your search results, or start a new search.
