    What can I do to support my child in the AVID Elective class?

    AVID has resources available to help you support your child in the AVID Elective and with their schoolwork. Also, contact your child’s school for additional ways you can support AVID and get involved.

    My child is not in the AVID Elective. How does he/she benefit?

    AVID is designed to impact the leadership, systems, instruction and culture of a school to support high expectations and levels of achievement for all students. AVID impacts students throughout the school when trained teachers use AVID strategies to influence the academic and behavioral skills of their students in all content classes. Although AVID is an elective course for selected students, ALL students will benefit because the methodologies, strategies, and expectations are schoolwide and impact the learning environment and culture of an entire campus.
