2006 2007 wasc report
2006-2007 WASC Report
  • “In addition, an AVID program targets students who have the potential to succeed in college but are generally considered to require extra support and motivation to attend college. All AVID students participate in routine evaluation and refinement of their Personal Learning Plan. Conversations overheard among students suggest AVID students are asked by non-AVID students to share information regarding college application requirements and deadlines.”
