What is AVID?
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a schoolwide college and career readiness system. AVID is designed to increase the number of students who enroll and succeed in higher education and in their lives beyond high school. Booth-Fickett is the ONLY TUSD school that offers an elementary component. AVID-trained educators teach students academic and social skills to help them develop the habits and behaviors needed to succeed in rigorous curriculum.
How does AVID work?
AVID aligns a school campus with the most current research-based college and career readiness practices. At the elementary level, AVID instructional practices are used schoolwide. At the secondary level, AVID instructional practices are used schoolwide and the AVID Elective class is utilized to add an extra layer of support for college readiness if a student chooses to participate.
