Five Reasons to Support AVID
It's the data. AVID stands out in a sea of experimental, unproven programs. It has volumes of data validating exactly how and why it works, not to mention a 27-year track record of closing the achievement gap.
It's the standards. AVID not only makes the college dream accessible to traditionally underserved students, but it also helps schools meet state accountability measures.
It's the American Dream. College may not be for every student, but every student should have the opportunity to attend a four-year college.
It's the right thing to do. Who can argue with creating greater equity for thousands of students who until now have not had access to academically challenging classes?
It's the economy. We need an educated workforce and can't afford to leave anyone behind. Business supports AVID because it ensures that more students are trained to think critically, overcome obstacles and work in teams
