Each year, students will take the New York State tests in ELA and Mathematics. Those students who score a level one or level two qualify for the Academic Intervention Program (AIP). Our goal is that all of our students earn a level three or four on these assessments, and we are committed to helping students close the gap by providing valuable AIP support. With that in mind, we have created two levels of AIP support, direct and indirect.
Direct AIP Support
Students who scored a level one or a low level two receive direct instruction to help build the necessary academic skills. In lieu of a foreign language, they have an AIP class . This class will meet one period every day for forty minutes with an AIP teacher.
Indirect AIP Support
Students who scored at a level two or lower but were at a level three or four in previous years will receive support in their regularly scheduled Math or English class. Their progress will continue to be monitored by their current teacher. The AIP teacher will also consult with your child???s teacher to support student growth throughout the school year. The sole purpose of AIP is to help your child build the skills necessary to meet or exceed the New York State Learning Standards in Math and English and be successful in class.
Students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) will receive one period of instruction with a resource teacher from the Brighton Central School District. Any additional services that the student may require and that are provided by the public school district will be scheduled in coordination with the administration and may require that the student be pulled from class. While we pride ourselves in our ability to work with and promote the success of all students, we cannot meet the needs of all students. In the admissions process we evaluate prospective students needs and our ability to meet them.
