• Academic Intervention Services (AIS) for English Language Arts (ELA)


    In an effort to help all students be ready to start college or a career when they graduate, the New York State Department of Education requires school districts to design a procedure for determining which students, of those who scored below the median scale score between levels 2 and 3 on the state ELA assessments in grades 3 to 8, should receive AIS.  In addition to reviewing each student's state test scores, teachers in the Oyster Bay - East Norwich Central School District review multiple measures of student achievement, including reading benchmark assessments, writing samples from student portfolios, course grades, and teacher recommendations based on reading and writing conferences. Parents of students who are offered AIS are notified in writing.
