  • OUR MISSION: To close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

    Today, I/we will show you how AVID closes the gaps, both the opportunity and the achievement, and prepares students to be successful in college.

    First, an introduction to the AVID College Readiness System.

    The AVID College Readiness System, available for elementary, secondary and higher education (K-16), is a schoolwide transformational effort focused on leadership, systems, instruction and culture, and is  designed to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and in their lives beyond high school.  AVID-trained educators teach students academic and social skills to help them develop the habits and behaviors needed to succeed in rigorous curriculum.  The AVID College Readiness System is a catalyst for developing a school culture that closes the expectation and opportunity gaps many students face, and prepares all students for success in a global society.
     
    AVID Elementary is a foundational component for elementary sites (grades K-8), designed as an embedded, sequential academic skills resource. It is intended for non-elective, multi-subject, multi-ability level classrooms.
    - Stages of AVID Elementary (Beginnings, Foundations, Bridges) (grades K-8)
    - All students
    - Strategies embedded throughout entire instructional day

    The core of AVID at the high school and middle level is the AVID elective class where students are enrolled in a school’s most rigorous classes, such as Advanced Placement® (AP) and receive support in the AVID elective class - taught within the school day by a trained AVID teacher.

    Schoolwide AVID impacts an entire school by creating a college-going culture across the campus as the majority of staff is trained in AVID strategies, and students in ALL classes are expected to use AVID methodologies, such as Cornell note-taking and group collaboration.

    Secondary
    Schoolwide impact for all students through teacher training
    Core: AVID elective class (ML & HS grades)
    - Selected students
    - Weekly structure of curriculum & activities

    AVID for Higher Education collaborates with institutions of higher education to systemically address the goals of increased learning, persistence, completion and success in and beyond college. AVID supports students in their efforts to earn a college degree and/or certificate by developing and strengthening academic skills and personal abilities.

    Each component has continuity to the next through the basic tenets of AVID that include Essentials, WICOR, and a Site Team.

    TRANSITION to SCHOOLWIDE: The AVID System works schoolwide to transform entire campuses. [NEXT]



  • Remembering the AVID mission: To close the achievement gap by preparing ALL students for college readiness and success in a global society.

    TRANSITION to IMPORTANCE OF COLLEGE READINESS: So, WHY IS COLLEGE READINESSS SO IMPORTANT?
    [NEXT]
  • So, what is college readiness?
    As defined by Dr. David Conley, author and expert on preparing students for college, college readiness can be defined operationally as “the level of preparation a student needs to enroll and succeed—without remediation—in a credit-bearing general education course at a postsecondary institution that offers a baccalaureate degree or transfer to a baccalaureate program.”

    Although approximately 45% of all students who enroll in postsecondary education will ultimately earn a bachelor’s degree, only 17 to 39% of students who take remedial courses will successfully earn that degree, depending on the number and type of remedial courses taken. Among students who take no remedial courses, 58% will earn a bachelor’s degree (College Board 2004).

    An Operational Definition of College Readiness, pg. 5 Defining College Readiness, David Conley. https://www.epiconline.org/files/pdf/RedefiningCR_Vol3.pdf

  • AVID is a schoolwide college-readiness system that works to influence the belief system, culture and instructional strategies of the entire campus.

    AVID addresses college readiness for ALL students, particularly those who would be first-generation college-goers.
  • TRANSITION TO AVID SENIOR DATA: Every year, AVID collects data from seniors in the AVID elective class; participation is optional, and typically around 90 percent of the seniors participate. We collect this data to help ensure AVID fidelity and to make improvements to the AVID elective classes as needed. [NEXT]

  • AVID was created by one exceptional teacher who recognized that students from low-income families without a college-going tradition could succeed in high school and be college ready.
     
    In 1980, Mary Catherine Swanson was teaching English at Clairemont High School when San Diego schools were being desegregated. Students from urban schools were being bused to the suburbs. Many teachers thought that these students wouldn’t be able to succeed, but Mary Catherine believed that they just needed the opportunity and the right support.
     
    She recruited 32 low-income, diverse students with average grades (C students) and enrolled them in college preparatory classes and an elective class she designed to develop study skills, provide tutoring in collaborative study groups, and focus on writing for learning. The simple formula remains the same: raise expectations of students and, with the AVID support system in place, they will rise to the challenge.
