AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college
readiness and success in a global society.
The AVID program helps prepare students for college and determining their career paths. The
students take an AVID elective class every year. The AVID teachers, Mr. Wilson & Ms. Boughton, teach
core classes, as well as the AVID elective classes, to the students in the program. In the classes, the
teachers implement AVID strategies, such as Cornell notes and Tutorials, to help students gain a better
understanding of their subjects. The AVID Coordinator, Ms. Chin, monitors the students’ academic and
disciplinary status. Students not meeting the requirements will be placed on probation; continued
non-compliance with the AVID requirements will cause those students to be removed from the program
after much consideration from the AVID Site Team.
