AVID? What is that?. THANK YOU!!!.
What is that?
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

Most, not all, AVID
students are underrepresented minorities -- Latinos and African-Americans -- who may lack a college-going tradition in their family and whose success is critical to closing the achievement gap. Students who sit in your class and need a push!
