The Read Live School of the Year Award recognizes schools whose students have substantially improved their reading skills with Read Live. Thank you to everyone who participated! We received dozens of excellent nominations. 

The 2023 Read Live School of the Year Winner Is...

Upson Lee Elementary!

Upson Lee Elementary School has used Read Live for the past 5 years. Students have demonstrated impressive growth working in Word Warm-ups Live, Read Naturally Live, and One Minute Reader Live four days a week. According to nominating teacher Debbie Busbee, Read Live has helped the students meet their goals on MAP Benchmark assessments, and "Students who have been in the bottom 20th percentile of their class are now performing in the upper part of their grade level." Congratulations, Upson Lee Elementary! Check out Upson Lee's winning video below, and read their winning story here.
