Perryville Elementary Accelerated Reader Program
For the 2012-2013 school year, the Accelerated Reader program will be goal oriented. Each student will read and test independently to earn points and the incentive activities. Each student’s goal will be set based on his or her reading level as determined by test results and teacher assessment. The suggested reading level range is the reading level range from which the student should be selecting books for optimal growth in reading. Student goals will not exceed his or her actual grade level in school.
|Grade Level||Point Goal|
There will be three reading goal periods for second through sixth grade students. Students who reach their goal with 80% accuracy or better will be eligible for the incentive trips. The activities for each goal period are tentatively scheduled and dates along with permission slips will be given at a later date. Activities could possibly change due to weather or availability.
|1st||August 27-November 9||TBA|
|2nd||November 14-February 1||TBA|
|3rd||February 4-April 26||TBA|
All students who meet their goal for ALL three goal periods with at least an 80% accuracy will earn an extra reward to be set at a later date. Any student enrolling in our school after the first goal period has ended will not be eligible for the extra reward.
All students will have some time to read at school; however, additional reading at home is necessary in order to earn points and achieve goals. Students must pass Accelerated Reader Tests to earn points. Students must take all AR tests to earn points on or before the last day the goal period. Students will not be allowed to “carry over” points for the next reading goal period. Each student will read and test independently to earn points and the incentive activities.
Students will not be permitted to take AR tests on books used as part of the grade-level curriculum. *Any student who chooses to cheat or be dishonest on the AR incentive program will lose ALL points and any other incentives for that reading goal period. If a student is placed in ISS for any reason during the goal period, they will not be eligible to attend the trip for that goal period.
