AVID

Mission

AVID’s mission is to ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students who are in the middle:

  • will succeed in a rigorous curriculum,
  • will complete a rigorous college preparatory path,
  • will enter mainstream activities of the school,
  • will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and
  • will become educated responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.

AVID’s systemic approach is designed to support students and educators as they increase schoolwide and districtwide learning and performance.

 

Overview

AVID is an elective class and program for grades 6-12 designed to target and enroll students from the academic middle into a school’s most rigorous courses.  Students receive support in the AVID elective class through tutoring and a proven curriculum based on writing, inquiry, collaboration and reading (WICR).
