Accelerated Reader Guidelines for Taking AR Tests
 The guidelines are:

1. Parents or helpers are only allowed to read the questions for students who need assistance.
2. The book being tested should remain closed.
3. The students should choose the answers to questions all by themselves as this checks their comprehension.
(Failure to follow the guidelines could result in deletion of tests from the student's record.)

AR testing hours are Monday-Thursday 7:20- 3:00
