AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a schoolwide approach to curriculum and rigor that works to improve the instruction, systems, leadership and culture on campus to prepare all students for college and career readiness. Each secondary school in the district has an AVID Site Team and an AVID Coordinator that work to implement and refine instructional practices and support access and opportunity for all students. In addition, schools offer an AVID elective class, a targeted approach meant to close the opportunity gap by supporting students who may identify as first generation college goers, from an underrepresented group on college campuses, who qualify as economically underserved, and/or students who have special circumstances. Students apply and interview for the AVID Elective class which takes place during the school day as one of their year-long elective options
