Academic Intervention Services (AIS)
Academic Intervention Services (AIS) are provided to students based upon multiple measures of proficiency and academic readiness at each grade level (including, but not limited to, those listed below). AIS may be offered to students in many instructional settings including: writing labs, reading labs, direct instruction in reading strategies, math labs, or a student may be assigned to the Learning Center for additional support and small group re or pre-teaching in any content area.
Student Evaluation, Promotion & Placement: Decisions about student promotion and placement are at the discretion of the school administration. These decisions are guided by recommendations of teachers and staff members, past academic performance, and parent/guardian input. Past academic performance refers to a variety of indicators of student achievement and growth. Promotion and placement decisions are not based solely on student performance on NYS assessments in grades 3-8 English Language Arts or Mathematics. Parents and/or guardians shall receive an appropriate report of student progress at regular intervals. The District will not include on a student's official transcript or maintain in a student's permanent record any individual student score on a state-administered standardized ELA or Mathematics assessment for grades 3 through 8. The District's promotion and placement policy was adopted by the Board of Education following a review by the district administration.
Our goal is to provide every student with the opportunity to succeed. Should parents or guardians feel at any time that a child needs further support in any academic area, please contact Sarah Staskiewicz, AIS Coordinator, at 493-2592 or by email.
