ELAR Policy
Accelerated Reader

AR requirements vary from grade to grade.  The goal is to encourage independent reading and help students become more sophisticated in their reading.  The requirements become more demanding with each grade level.

AR requirements also vary in the Pre-AP classes from grade to grade with the same goal as the academic classes.

Students understand that when they take an AR test, it is a measure of their reading.  They know that they are responsible for reading the book and taking the test in order to receive any credit. A student will receive no AR credit for the following:
Taking a test over a book which they have not read
Receiving any help answering questions on an AR test
Giving another student any help answering questions on an AR test
Receiving help by having another student log in for him/her and take an AR test
Giving another student help by logging in under his/her name and taking an AR test

Cheating on an AR test= 3 days in ISS and a zero for the AR assignment.
