Student achievement is a high priority in the Tonawanda City School District. To ensure that all students are successful, Academic Intervention Services (AIS) and Response to Intervention (RTI) are provided for students who are having difficulty making progress. Performance in class, tests and state assessments are used to evaluate whether a student needs AIS/RTI. Depending on the recommendation, students may receive extra help during the regular school day with their classroom teacher or an AIS/RTI teacher. AIS/RTI Services may include academic, social, emotional and physical supports. Parents who are concerned about their child’s progress should talk to their child’s teacher, counselor or to the principal.

The District shall provide AIS/RTI services to students who have scored at or below the specified cut points listed below for Grades 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics State assessments in 2018-19.
