What is AIS (Academic Intervention Services)
What is AIS?
AIS stands for Academic Intervention Services. It is a state mandated program designed to assist students in becoming better readers and writers.
Who receives AIS Literacy support?
Students may receive AIS Literacy support based on several conditions. They include...
- Report card grades and classroom performance
- Results from NYS assessments
- Teacher recommendation
How is AIS support provided to students?
Students most likely will receive support in a pull-out setting. This is a small group setting of approximately five students with similar needs who work with a Literacy teacher in developing skills and strategies to become better readers and writers.
Students might also receive support in a push-in setting. The AIS Literacy teacher will support students in a content area class (English, social studies, or science) in developing the skills needed to be a successful reader and writer in these courses.
