On Nov. 6, 2018, Atlanta Public Schools launched our district-wide literacy campaign, APSRace2Read. This challenge was designed to encourage students, teachers, staff and parents to read daily and collectively reach 2 million minutes of reading by the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.
We are happy to report that APS has surpassed our original 2 million minutes goal and has raised the bar to 13.1 million minutes—the equivalent of a half marathon of reading!
Beanstack is a web-based, mobile-friendly tool that we are using to track our independent reading during our 13.1 million minutes challenge. Reading may be logged at any time – in school or on the go.
Simply record what you’re reading and the time spent reading. Logging reading minutes via Beanstack is a crucial stride on our track to victory. That’s right, victory. Each reader is eligible to earn badges of recognition while building excitement and enthusiasm around free-choice reading across the district.
APS is passing the baton, challenging you and your child to read every day. Each APS school has its own Beanstack site, where you can view individual school progress on achieving its schoolwide goal. Parents, find your child’s school site below or login via their Clever dashboard. Staff and community members, register as an individual or family below.
