Academic Intervention Services (AIS)

P.S.231 takes the academic success of our students very seriously.  We realize that, while we have many behavior goals that we must work on daily in order to enable our students to achieve important life skills, our students also have promotional criteria to meet in order to move on to the next grade.  Our AIS team looks at our testing and portfolio data and decides what can be done to support our students academically.  The information gathered at our AIS meetings is then used to inform the teaching done in the classroom. 

Presently, the AIS team has targeted 4th grade readers with the goal of raising levels by October of 2008.  Literacy programs are offered to our classroom teams that will support them in getting our students to that goal.
