  • AVID's NEW Community Partnership

    Posted by Kayla Phillips on 10/30/2017 1:00:00 PM

    Our GMS 7th and 8th grade AVID classes are starting a NEW service learning project with our next door neighbors, Gentry Estates.  We will be volunteering our time to help the residents with technology, small chores, and also just learning to socially interact with older adults.  

    Each of our classes will be visiting two times a month.  Please see our AVID calendar for specific dates.

AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

  • DiscoverEngageSuccee

    AVID is:
    • an acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.
    • an in-school academic support program for grades 7-12 that prepares students for college eligibility and success
    • an elective class that meets during the regular school day
    • for all students, but it targets those in the academic middle
    • implemented both school-wide and district-wide
    Who is an AVID student?

    Students in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support. Sometimes these students have yet to realize their full academic potential.  During the identification process, a number of criteria are considered, including:

    • Grades
    • Standardized Test Scores
    • Citizenship
    • Attendance
    • Desire and Determination
    If selected for AVID, what are the student responsibilities?
    1.  Take the AVID elective class each year.
    2.  Maintain satisfactory citizenship and attendance in all classes.
    3.  Maintain the AVID binder contents including, but not limited to, assignment sheets and Cornell notes.
    4.  Complete all homework assignments and commit to a structured homework routine each night.
    5.  Maintain a grade of 80% (or 2.5) or higher in all classes
