CUSD has exciting news for students who have decided to challenge themselves by taking an Honors Level or Advanced Placement course. Summer assignments and assignments over Winter Break will no longer be required. However, we offer you several resources and ideas for optional reading. Below are some resources to assist you in selecting books.


The California Recommended Literature List is a searchable database of a collection of outstanding literature for children and adolescents in grades prekindergarten through grade twelve in all disciplines. Each book has a description called an "annotation" describing the book.


The Find a Book, California tool offers students over 160,000 books from which to choose. This book-search tool enables individuals to build custom reading lists based on Lexile range, grade level, and/or personal interests. The Find A Book program is a national, state-led summer reading initiative sponsored by the Council of Chief State Schools Officers.
