Media Center

Welcome to the Bartow Elementary Academy Media Center!  Our first priority is to help students and teachers in any way we can to promote literature and lifelong learning.

Students can visit our BEA Digital Library by logging into their Classlink > Schoology account.  Our Media Specialist, Dr. Ashley Hedrick, has posted many useful links for our families.  She even has read-alouds posted!

Polk County Public Schools website has many useful online resources.  Students can log into their Classlink > PCPS Online Resource Link  OR click here to access the online resources from the main page.

Our reading incentive program is Accelerated Reader (AR). Students take a placement test (STAR) providing a reading level range. Students choose books within their range and take computerized quizzes. Points are assigned for each quiz that is passed.  Parents can sign up for Home Connect which allows them to see their student’s quiz results in real time. The link above will allow you to sign up for Home Connect. The user name is your student’s id # and the password is their birth month (2 digit) and day (2 digit).
