In this section you will find information, pictures and videos about what we do in AVID so you can become familiar with the program. Currently we have 100 AVID students in the program. There are several methods we use to identify potential AVID students.
1. They can apply to be in AVID. Applications are available at the counselor’s office. After they apply, the AVID coordinator and team members available will interview them.
2. They can be recommended by their teachers or counselors and even their own peers. Teachers and counselors can send a list or they can fill out the teacher recommendation form which will be reviewed by the AVID site team at the monthly site team meeting.
3. Their parents can contact the school or AVID coordinator to be in the program.
