Accelerated Reader Requirements

 

For each 9 weeks period,

 

  • Read books on your AR reading level. Your AR reading level is determined by your current STAR score; your teacher will tell you your AR reading level after you complete the STAR reading test.

 

  • Pass AR quizzes on your AR reading level to earn AR points. (Points will round up. For example, earning 29.7 points will round up to 30.)

 

  • You will earn an “AR Points” project grade in Language Arts. See chart below for the AR points grading system.

 

  • AR point deadlines will be on the following dates by 3:15 p.m.:

1st 9 Weeks: October 4, 2017
