AIS is an acronym for Academic Intervention Services. This program is provided for students who are presently not meeting New York State grade level standards in reading, mathematics, science and/or social studies. The goal of the AIS Department is to evaluate and instruct students based on their individual academic needs.
Students are instructed in small group settings to help them develop the prerequisite skills needed to help them perform in the classroom. Students are also taught at a pace appropriate to their individual needs.
AIS teachers and classroom teachers frequently meet to discuss students strengths and weaknesses as well as plan instructional objectives to help students reach the necessary academic goals.
Throughout the school year AIS teachers communicate with parents through Open House, parent conferences and assessment reports. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the program, please contact your child's AIS teacher.
