Destiny is our web-based, district-wide library browser. Destiny is the library catalog produced by Follett, one of the most respected names in school libraries.
- Destiny is web-based so it can be used from any computer with Internet connection.
- Destiny shows books available not only at Castaneda, but also all the other schools in the entire Brownsville School District.
Accelerated Reader Enterprise includes unlimited access to more than 150,000 quizzes—including quizzes for books students can find at the school library, public library, and home. Students could take a test, view their reading record and points. Teachers could view/print both individual and class reading record reports and make modifications as to specific date range or marking periods.
AR Book Finder allows students and teachers to see if there is an AR test for a specific book.
By logging onto Renaissance Home Connect*, parents can access real-time information in English or Spanish to stay up to date and keep their children motivated. Students and parents can see progress toward reading goals, review AR quiz results, view the number of books and words read, and strengthen vocabulary skills. Research shows that students perform better when parents are actively involved in the learning process.
