AIS - Academic Intervention Services, some students have AIS on their schedule and this is because they scored either a Level 1 or 2 on the 2015 ELA or Math NYS tests. The AIS extra help class is designed to help your child to master skills they may lack either in reading or math. The results of your child's 2015 ELA & Math NYS tests will be mailed home sometime in later September. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.
