Accelerated Reader

The Accelerated Reader (AR) program is an integral part of the curriculum at Girard Elementary School. The goal of this program is to improve a student's ability to read while maintaining a high level of comprehension. Each student will be placed at a comfort zone (color) determined by an initial reading placement test (STAR). Students will be expected to read books in order to earn "points" toward a pre-determined reading goal. Students (3rd-5th) are also expected to pass computer-generated comprehension tests on these books with at least an 85% average. Students (1st-2nd) are also expected to pass computer-generated comprehension tests on these books with at least an 80% average. Success in this program depends upon consistent effort. Please review with your child his/her goals for each nine weeks and carefully monitor daily progress toward reaching that goal.
