Academic Intervention Services (AIS)
Recognizing that “one size does not fit all,” the Department of Education supports a system of targeted intervention services to help struggling students in New York City public schools. Through the use of a range of research-based strategies built on top of a strong base of literacy and mathematics programs, interventions are tailored to move achievement in learners with varied needs.
Academic Intervention Services (AIS) are available to students in all schools. A team of school-based educational professionals determine the academic intervention needs of students in the school, develop targeted strategies for assessing students, and determine methods for dealing with academic problems. Schools’ educators monitor on an ongoing basis whether these methods are resulting in increased learning and achievement.
