Academic Intervention Services

  •  

    Welcome to Academic Intervention Services (AIS) for mathematics. The AIS program is designed to help students achieve the NYS Learning Standards. This is accomplished through additional instruction that supports the general curriculum or by addressing barriers to improved academic performance. 

     

    Objectives:

    • To remediate as needed.
    • To reinforce basic concepts/skills daily. 
    • To increase student ability and confidence in mathematics.
    • To develop or enhance a system of organization and self-discipline. 

     

    Outline:

    This class is aligned with the New York State Common Core Curriculum. Topics are similar to those covered in the core math class, though they may not be covered in the same order or at the same time.
