AVID Program Implementation Essentials

In order to recognize AVID sites in an annual basis after the implementation year, and to ensure program integrity and implementation of AVID Program Implementation Essentials, an annual certification process was developed in the fall of 1996 by the AVID Center in San Diego. To use the AVID trade name, trademark, and logo, each school must agree to annual participation in the certification process and must be recognized as an Affiliate, Certified, or Distinguished AVID School.
