ACADEMIC INTERVENTION SERVICES (AIS)
Academic Intervention Services are designed to help students achieve the learning standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science.
These services include two components:
A. Additional instruction that supplements the general curriculum. Additional instruction means the provision of extra time for focused instruction and/or increased student-teacher instructional contact time designed to help students achieve the learning standards.
B. Student support services needed to address barriers to improved academic performance. Student support services provide interventions that address barriers to student progress such as: problems in attendance, discipline, family, health, nutrition and status.
