AVID

AVID Mission:

Close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

AVID Summary Description:

AVID helps students in develop their academic skills, specifically writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading (what AVID refers to as WICOR). The AVID Elective also provides students with opportunities to increase their college knowledge and take college field trips. Students and teachers in the AVID Elective often develop a close-knit peer group, commonly known as the AVID family. AVID also acts to improve access and equity to rigorous courses on a campus and the professional learning provides strategies that can help all students be more college ready, even if they are not in the AVID Elective, through the use of AVID teaching strategies in content-area classes.

AVID is offered at Gypsum Elementary, Gypsum Creek Middle School, Eagle Valley Middle School, Berry Creek Middle School, Eagle Valley High School and Battle Mountain High School.
