STAR (Students Thrilled About Reading) PROGRAM
STAR is a Madison PTA-sponsored program designed to encourage students to read and be read to. Research shows that the amount of reading done out of school is consistently related to gains in academic achievement.

HOW IT WORKS
Parents and/or students record the number of minutes that the student spends independently reading, or being read to each day, outside of class time via the on-line STAR TRACKER. Monthly minutes are due on the 5th of the following month, i.e. September minutes are due by October 5th.
To get started Click on the STAR Tracker above to obtain your parent ID log in. You will need your student's RBUSD email account to get started.
Here is a helpful video tutorial on how to use the tracker: STAReading Tutorial
