AIS Program Overview

The Falcon Pride Online Program at AIS meets in a room off the computer lab in the building.   All of our tutors are certified teachers and they assist the students in completing their work online, but also provide intervention in the identified areas of need.  


Each student has a username and password for our online platform, PEAK through Blackboard Learning which is loaded with curriculum provided by FuelEducation.  The students are able to work from home and at school.  The PEAK platform is monitored by a teacher of record, most of which are teachers on staff in the Austintown Local School District.  Teachers have office hours that they are available to provide 1-on-1 assistance with students in person.  For more information on FuelED and PEAK please visit, here.





A modified lab schedule may be approved through a meeting with program director, building principal, counselor and dean of students.




If you are interested in the program please contact your grade level principal and guidance counselor to set up a meeting.  At the meeting, it is important to discuss if the placement in the online program is appropriate and the best fit for your individual needs.
