Q: How can I find out if there is an AR quiz for the book my child has selected?
A: Arroyo Verde Elementary has access to every quiz created by Renaissance Learning for every book. The only reason we may not have a quiz is if the book is recently published or one has not been created for it. Because we have all quizzes available, it is impossible to keep a current list on our website. To view a book's reading level or point value, access the link to AR Bookfinder on the lower portion of our homepage.
Q: What are the school and district policies regarding bullying and cyber bullying?
