Academic Intervention Services

What are Academic Intervention Services?

Academic Intervention Services (AIS) are designed to help students achieve the learning standards in English language arts and mathematics in grades K-12 and social studies and science in grades 4-12. These services include two components:

  • Additional instruction that supplements the general curriculum (regular classroom instruction).
  • Student support services needed to address barriers to improved academic performance.
    The intensity of such services may vary, but they must be designed to respond to student needs as indicated through state assessments results and/or the district-adopted or district-approved procedure that is consistent throughout the district at each grade level.

How does a district determine which students are eligible for AIS?

Students eligible for AIS, including those with disabilities and/or limited English proficiency, are:

  • Those who score below the designated performance levels on elementary, intermediate, and commencement-level state assessments in English language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.
  • Those at risk of not meeting state standards as indicated through the district-adopted or district-approved procedure, including those K-3 students who lack reading readiness.

How do I know if my child is included in the AIS program?

Parents or guardians are notified by letter that their child qualifies to receive these services.
