What is AVID?

The AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) system is used in 14 schools across the district and trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and career, especially students underrepresented in higher education.

Amanda Bergamasco, Curriculum Resource Specialist, provides SJCSD teachers with training and methodologies that develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills.  These strategies are implemented across all content areas throughout the entire school campus.  Mrs. Bergamasco and Mrs. Dixon will provide a parent training on AVID for parents at Ketterlinus Elementary School on November 9th.  Please contact the school for more information.
