Academic Intervention Services

New York State Education Law Section 100.2(ee) requires school districts to provide Academic Intervention Services (AIS) to students who score below the State designated performance level on State assessments and/or who are at risk of not achieving the State learning standards. School districts are required to provide these services to students and to monitor their progress toward improvements.

The District identifies students for AIS through a two-step process: 

  • First, all students performing at or below a cut score established through a standard setting process shall be considered for AIS.
  • Upon identification of a student for consideration for AIS, the District will then use a locally developed procedure to be applied uniformly at each grade level.  This procedure considers the student's performance on multiple measures of student performance, which may include, but are not limited to, the following:
    • Renaissance/Star 360 assessments for early literacy, reading, and math
    • Developmental reading assessments for grades K-6
    • Classroom work samples
    • NYS English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT)
    • Benchmark and lesson-embedded assessments for reading and math based on teacher designed and selected assessments
    • Common formative assessments that provide information about student skills; unit and lesson assessments for ELA, mathematics, science, social studies and LOTE for grades 7-8; and 
    • Results of psychoeducational evaluations based on a variety of assessments and inventories

The District maintains the option to make a determination that a student who scores above the cut score for eligibility for AIS may receive the service.  This utilization of multiple measures, coupled with RTI (Response to Intervention),  and discussions/evaluations, will inform the student plan.
