Accelerated Reader Guidelines

Each grade level will have an Accelerated Reader Point Scale.  The Point Scale will determine the test grade for the nine weeks based on the number of AR points accumulated by the student.  The average of the test scores per nine weeks will also count as a test grade.  Special Education students will have their points doubled on the point scale unless otherwise determined by the ARD committee.

Kindergarten will begin the program the third ninth weeks.  First grade through 5th grade will begin the program the first ninth week.

Accelerated Math Guidelines

Practices and exercises that need to be completed can be taken home.  Students may receive help on practices and exercises.

All tests must be taken in the classroom.  Students may not receive help on the tests. 

First grade will begin taking grades in AM starting the second ninth week.

An average from the practices will count as a daily grade each nine weeks.  The AM Objective Scale, based on objectives mastered each nine weeks, will count as a test grade each nine weeks.
