AR Guidelines and Expectations 

First and foremost, this is to be a POSITIVE experience with reading and goal setting for each individual to encourage a love of reading. 

The teacher and student are responsible for conferencing (using the AR contract) to set a realistic goal (how many points) each nine weeks for each student and must obtain a parent signature on the contrac

Goals will be based on STAR recommendations but can be set higher or lower based on the teacher/student conference.

Students may take AR tests on class read alouds, small group readers, or independent reads at home or school.

All books in the library will be marked with a label of the AR level for students to use while checking out books.

Students must be able to read the first 100 sight words before being able to take AR test independently. No tests will be read to students.

Once goals are set for a nine weeks they are not to be changed or altered later.

Picture books should read 3 times before taking a test. Chapter books may only be read once.

Students may take AR tests during classroom computer lab times, library times, during assigned “Free Flow” days, on the iPads/Chromebooks or desktop computer in the classroom. If taking a test in the library or computer lab, students are required to have the book in hand. Teachers will set up a schedule of “AR test days” within their classroom instructional time. AR testing is not to occur during Core, RTI, or Flex instructional blocks. Students testing during “center time” is permissible.  Time restrictions for AR are Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., during school hours.

AR tests will be considered “passed” if a student receives a score of 80% or higher. A passing score will contribute points to the goal set on the contract. A failing score will not.

All library books are due back on May 4th. Please note, the 4th nine weeks will only allow students 8 weeks to achieve their goal.
