Services are provided to students who score below the State-designated
performance levels on State assessments and/or who are at risk of not achieving
the State Learning Standards. Presently, this score for students in
grades 3-8 is a proficiency level of 1 or 2 and 65% for High School Regents
exams required for graduation.
These services include
additional instruction that is provided before and after school, during the
school day or during the summer, that supplement the general curriculum. Students
in grades 4-8 are scheduled for Academic Intervention Services during the
school day. High School students are scheduled for Academic Intervention
Services through AIS Lab periods for designated subjects in English, Math, Social
Studies and Science.
Summer School is offered
to students in Grade 6 who attend the Grade 6 Summer Academy, for students in
grades 7-8 for English and Math and for Social Studies and Science which is
taught through an interdisciplinary model through English and for students in

fulfilling graduation requirements.
The focus of Academic
Intervention Services is providing support in meeting NYS Learning
Standards within the Common Core, additional learning opportunities to
strengthen basic skills in core content areas in order to improve student
performance on State assessments and to provide a risk free environment for
students to reach and exceed their learning potential.
