Welcome to ELA Strategies/AIS grades 7 and 8. ELA stands for English Language Arts and AIS stands for Academic Intervention Services. This course meets every other day for a full school year. It is designed for any student who has not met the minimum cut-off score from the previous year's NYS/ELA Assessment or who was recommended by previous year's English teacher for someone who can use extra help with English skills/strategies. This course will further develop skills and/or bolster their English skills throughout all academic areas.
