The Response to Intervention Program (RTI) is designed to develop the phonetic and comprehension skills of students who have difficulty decoding and understanding material that is written on their Grade level. Students who are included in the RTI Program are assigned to either Tier II or Tier III based upon the results of the District's MAP Testing Program and New York State's English Language Arts Assessment. Students in the program attend daily classes and utilize materials which correspond to their instructional level. Emphasis is placed upon developing fluency and the ability to understand both narrative and informational texts of increasing complexity. Activities are also utilized to increase the students' written expression and enhance their ability to respond to different types of texts. Mrs. Calo instructs students in Tier II and Mrs. Zarcone provides help to students in Tier III.

The Academic Intervention Services (AIS) Program is designed to develop the mathematical skills for students who have not met the standards set by New York State. Students ini Grades 4-5 are assigned to the program based upon the results of the District's MAP Testing Program and New York State's Mathematics Assessment. Students attend AIS classes once a week and engage in a variety of activities to develop problem solving and computational skills.
