What is that?

thank you

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to view this power point. We are in need of your help in locating and recruiting students for the AVID program. The number of 8th graders that we are looking for is unlimited, but we only want students who fit the AVID criteria that will be discussed later in this presentation. We look forward to working with you as we create the AVID freshmen class for the 2009-2010 school year

The mission of AVID is to ensure that ALL students, and most especially the least served students who are in the middle:

  • will succeed in rigorous curriculum,
  • will complete a rigorous college preparatory path,
  • will enter mainstream activities of the school,
  • will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and
  • will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society.
