About Academic Intervention Services (AIS)

The Port Chester School District provides Academic Intervention Services (AIS) to students who are at risk of not achieving the State learning standards.

Academic Intervention Services are designed to help eligible students achieve the NYS learning standards in English language arts and mathematics.  These services may include:

  • Additional instruction including whole, small group, solo or primary instruction that supplements the general curriculum (regular classroom instruction); and/or
  • Student support services needed to address barriers to improved academic performance

The intensity of AIS may vary; it is designed to respond to student needs as indicated through State and/or district formal or informal assessments.
