Stillwater Elementary Academic Intervention Services, known as AIS, is a way to provide additional targeted instruction to students that are at-risk or not meeting the rigor of grade level expectations. The students may receive assistance in either English Language Arts and or Mathematics based on a set of criteria. Extra assistance is defined as additional instruction in addition to the regular core instruction within the school day. Such services will be provided by a classroom teacher or an AIS provider. This additional instruction will be geared to the needs of the student (s) based on the information in our Stillwater Elementary Data Warehouse and teacher recommendation.
Each AIS student progress is closely monitored and assessed frequently by a highly qualified professional. All students receiving AIS will be monitored, in an effort to track progress and make instructional decisions based on data. If a student meets the entrance or exit criteria, and both the AIS and classroom teachers have made a recommendation for a student to receive or exit AIS, you will receive communication by the teacher and a formal letter from our office.
Some components utilized to make informative decisions for students:
- Classroom instruction
- Benchmark assessments
- Differentiated instruction
- Progress monitoring
- Universal data points
- Intervention blocks
The following benchmarks are given to students to assist in determining their progress over the course of the school year and elementary career. Some of these are as follows:
- Fountas & Pinnell reading assessment
- Math Envisions assessments
- Quarterly writing assessment
