Student's Hand Book
The student handbook is distributed to all students and their families at the beginning of each school year. It is our hope that the handbook provides answers to a wide variety of questions which both parents and students may have concerning program and curriculum, parent involvement, gate passes, absence and tardiness policies, class government, homework and other topics of interest.

Character Education & Development
Character development is an important element of AISS’s continuous school improvement process. Character development is to be included in all instructional programs for all students. The modeling of good character is expected of all staff and students because it is a powerful means of developing and reinforcing positive character in schools. Students who exhibit good character contribute to safe and orderly schools, to student achievement, and to positive student and staff morale. Key strategies in the AISS Blueprint for Progress designed to help develop good character in students include:
The following are AISS’s character objectives:
1. To develop the wisdom and good judgment to make reasoned decisions.
2. To develop a sense of justice that is informed by fairness, honesty, and civility.
3. To develop and demonstrate respect for self, respect for others, and respect for property.
4. To demonstrate tolerance and understanding of others regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, national origin, religion, creed, socio-economic status, marital status, pregnancy, personal record, sexual orientation, or political belief.
