The number of Raz-Kids' users/partner schools/districts was not publicly available. To find this information, we started by scouring through the website of Raz-Kids as well as Learning A-Z. While the official website of Raz-Kids provides the number of books read (over 9.93 billion) and online readers (20,896), the total number of users/school partners was not available. We then ran a press scan to identify news and media articles that provide any indication on the estimated number of Raz-Kids users in the US or internationally, but no such information was found. However, it was found that in 2014 "Raz-Kids facilitated the reading of more than 441 million eBooks and completion of over 418 million eQuizzes by more than 5 million learners" across the globe. By July 2018, "more than 7 billion Raz-Kids resources and activities have been accessed online." In the absence of available information on the total Raz-Kids users, we have provided the number of books read and the number of online readers in the attached presentation.
