Should ar points be counted as 20 percent of my childs reading grade. In my childs school she is required to get at least 20 points each nine weeks. If she fails to reach her goal by the end of the nine weeks and she had an A in reading class, her reading grade on her report card will be a C. If she does not have at least half of her points by mid term she is not allowed to perticapate in gym class or recess.

  • A Parent Well, we have something in common then, we both choose not to listen. Home-schooling may be the best option. On 4/12/10, Why? wrote: > This question has already been answered for you multiple times. Two people > have explained it. You cho...See More
