Ace Reader - https://lisdread.acereader.com

Great news! Ace Reader has been purchased for all campuses. If you have staff members that would like to use this tremendous resource, I need their names and school info emailed to me (davisml@lisd.net) and I will get them a username and password. There will be opportunities to attend an Ace Reader training very soon.
