Title 1/AIS

The purpose of Downsville's Title 1/AIS services is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach minimum proficiency on State academic achievement standards and State academic assessment.

Our goals are:

To provide instruction by highly qualified staff to academically struggling children identified as requiring Title 1/AIS services.

To select students to receive services by using multiple educationally related criteria such as NYS ELA and Math assessments, teacher recommendations, and classroom assessments.

To provide parents of participating children-

(A) timely information about Title 1/AIS programs

(B) a clear idea of Downsville's curriculum, the types of academic assessment used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels on State Assessments that students are expected to meet; and

(C) opportunitites for regular meeting if requested in order to contribute suggestions and to participate in decisions relating to the education of their children.
