Academic Intervention Services (AIS)
New York State mandates that all public school districts offer Academic Intervention Services (AIS) to any student who is falling behind in meeting state standards. Students are identified for AIS according to their performance on the state ELA, math, social studies and science exams in grades 4, 5, and 8. Gloversville students who score in Performance Levels 1 and 2 are eligible to receive AIS in the designated subject area.
Students are identified for AIS at all grade levels. The identification process is different for each level, but is always based on multiple measures:
- Developmentally appropriate measures such as: Diagnostic assessments; Early reading assessments/literacy profiles; Assessment portfolios; Performance/demonstrations; and/or Assessments of content skills, concepts, and knowledge.
- Tests of demonstrated technical quality such as: Standardized, norm-referenced tests (above grade three); Standardized, criterion-referenced tests; Other commercially-prepared assessments; and or Other measures that meet the standards contained in Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (American Psychological Association.)
- Review of: Classroom performance; report card grades; and/or Student Records.
- Recommendations from teachers, administrators, counselors, other school staff, and parents. District may also adopt or approve the procedure in grades where there are State assessments, particularly to assist in determining the level of intensity needed for services.
English as a New Language (ENL)
Gloversville offers English language learners appropriate programming in English as a New Language (ENL) classes, at all grade levels K-12.
