Academic Intervention Services
This service is provided to students who fall below reference/performance points in the standardized New York State Testing Program. The purposes of these classes include helping students attain an appropriate level of achievement in basic skills in reading, writing, math and other subject oriented areas so that they are able to achieve proficiency in their core content classes. AIS services are mandated for those students who do not progress toward graduation, as outlined by NYSED.
The goal of the media center program is twofold: to provide the means, materials and tools for research, and to facilitate in the acquisition of the skills necessary to do this research at the levels appropriate for each grade.

The ultimate goal is to develop the ability to do original independent research as well as to use the necessary thinking skills to accomplish this.
