Could you say what grade this is?

If I read your post correctly, they should have a completed story every other day, but only write for 20 minutes? That is insane. It might, I stress might, work if you do all the planning in your head ahead of time, then write like a fiend for 20 minutes.

You taught Writer’s Workshop and we’re trained, I assume. You know this is not how the program works. Personally, I would talk with the teacher and frankly state your “misconceptions” regarding her expectations. That given your professional experience, 20 minutes isn’t enough time. I would definitely ask her how she settled on this time frame.

Then, if she insists on the 20 minutes, tell her your dd is struggling mightily. That she is capable of producing a story, just needs more time.
