DISCLAIMER: Scholastic Reading Counts! is a commercial reading motivational program. The list of Scholastic Reading Counts! Quizzes spans reading material for grades K through 12 including beginning to adult readers. Titles on this list were selected by Scholastic Inc. not by the School District. Inclusion of a title on this list does not indicate a recommendation or endorsement of the book’s content by the School District of Palm Beach County. Certain books may not be age appropriate when the student is reading at an advanced level and may not meet District criteria within SDPBC Policy 8.12. Further, the Scholastic Reading Counts! quiz list of books should not be considered an exclusive reading list from which students must select their books to read. No school classroom or library media center has all the books found on the Scholastic Reading Counts! Quiz list. District purchased library media center and supplemental classroom instructional materials, on the other hand, adhere to the selection criteria found in SDPBC Policy 8.12. View as PDF.
