Now available in English and Spanish!

This new printable report is a great way to provide individualized updates to home coaches. The Home Update provides information on where the student currently is: their reading level, reading growth, reader engagement, and amount of reading practice. It supplies a short narrative about what the student can already do within the level, and what the student needs to work in in order to move to the next level. With level-specific coaching tips and suggested titles to look for, this report will enable parents/home coaches to better support their child’s reading.

Print out reports now, either from each student’s individual eIRLA/eENIL, or print in bulk from your classroom homepage.

Are you ready for the 2018/2019 school year?

The 2018/2019 school year is upon us! Before your school can start using SchoolPace to collect data for the new school year, you’ll need to submit a new SchoolPace Implementation Checklist, found below. The SchoolPace Implementation Checklist is a PDF with fill-in fields that asks for information about your school calendar, allows you to specify your reading practice (step) targets, and provides the specifications for user import files and student import files needed to populate SchoolPace with your school's information.

Important! Do not remove classrooms or students from the 2017/2018 school year! When you submit your SchoolPace Implementation Checklist we’ll add your school to the 2018/2019 school year. At that point you'll have a "blank slate," allowing you to add new classrooms, assign students, and start tracking data.

  • SchoolPace Roster Import Templates
