How can I track my district’s progress over summer?
Any educator can track their students’ progress online using the Kids Read Now Portal. You can log into the portal, click “Analytics”, and pull a list for students in your classroom, building, or school district (depending on your role). An informational video is available on the KRN Training Site and will also be supplied by your Account Manager.
When will my students get their books?
Your students will receive their first book at the Family Reading Event in the spring. Their remaining books will arrive automatically to their mailbox. We typically mail one book each week. Books may take 10-15 business days to arrive (2-3 weeks).
What is a Family Reading Event?
The Family Reading Event is a fun and exciting event that your school can put together to help inform your parents what the Kids Read Now program is. Most school pair the Family Reading Event with a spring assembly, ice cream social, or other community event for the school. It instructs your parents on how Kids Read Now works, what to expect, and how to report the student’s books. This event typically happens in the spring, shortly before the end of the school year. This is where your students would receive their first book and their parents would receive a Parent Guide giving them more information about Kids Read Now.
How will my students enroll in the program?
Students are enrolled in the program through a CSV file. Typically, your data manager will complete this task. We reach out to and work with your data manager to get a CSV file of the student names, their grade, teacher’s name, parent’s name, contact info, and address. From here, all the students on this will be enrolled in the program. If you have additional students that need to be added after the file is complete, contact your account manager, and we can add them for you.
Can I change my book selections?
Once the book selection has been made by your student in the spring, we are unable to modify their selections. This helps ensure students will receive the books they selected.
How can I update my information?
You and your student’s information were supplied to us by the school. If the information the school gave us is out of date or needs to be updated let us know! You can update your contact information on the app. Log into the app, click “contact info”, and update as needed. Alternatively, you can contact our team to update and change any contact info at 877-536-0130.
