Mission of AVID

AVID is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance.  The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students and most especially the least served students in the middle capable of completing a college preparatory  path:

  • Will succeed in rigorous curriculum
  • Will enter mainstream activities of the school
  • Will increase their enrollment in four-year colleges, and
  • Will become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society

AVID at the Elementary School Level

AVID Elementary is a program for elementary sites that set the foundation for AVID Secondary. AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact schoolwide structures.  AVID Elementary focuses on the fours essentials of: Instruction, Culture, Leadership, and Systems in order to  prepare students for academic success as well as preparing students to move up to established and certified elective AVID programs at both the middle and high school levels.

AVID at the Secondary School Level

AVID targets students in the academic middle – with GPA's between 2.0 and 3.5 – who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who have potential and are motivated to pursue and succeed in a rigorous course of study with built in support. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, many are from low-income or minority families, and who traditionally are under-represented in four-year colleges. AVID pulls these students out of their traditional courses and puts them on the college track: acceleration instead of remediation.

AVID Elective

Students are enrolled in their school’s most rigorous courses that are appropriate to them, such as honors and Advanced Placement, but also in the AVID elective. For one period a day, they learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and to ask probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college seem attainable.

AVID Curriculum

The AVID curriculum is based on rigorous standards, and was developed by middle and high school teachers in collaboration with instructional coaches and district curriculum leaders. It is driven by the WICOR method, which stands for writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading.  AVID curriculum is used in AVID elective classes, in content-area classes in AVID schools, and even in classes that are not designated as AVID.

AVID Educators

To ensure success, AVID Secondary needs an AVID site coordinator who is a dedicated and respected site instructional leader and works well with secondary school personnel and college students. The AVID site coordinator organizes curriculum as well as activities for the AVID Elective classes and is committed to serving the needs of students. The coordinator also works with colleagues, administrators, and counselors to implement AVID methodologies schoolwide, place students in college-preparatory curriculum, and guide students through the college application process. The AVID site coordinator not only embeds best teaching practices, supports students, develops family and community outreach, but also works with the districts and divisions that oversee AVID’s implementation.

AVID Parents

AVID parents encourage their students to achieve academically, participate on an advisory board and in AVID parent and site team meetings, as well as maintain regular contact with the AVID coordinator. Many parents and students also participate in AVID Family Workshops and AVID Family Night at their schools.  The support of AVID parents is critical in ensuring that students perform to the highest level of expectations and be successful in getting into a 4 years college or university.

Breakfast and lunch meals that meet Federal Nutrition Standards will be available at each school site, daily. Rialto Unified School District will be implementing a new option available to all schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2018 – 2019 School Year. All students enrolled in the school district are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2018-19 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. The District looks forward to serving nutritious, well-balanced meals to your child(ren) all year long. We request all parents/guardians to speak with their child(ren) to encourage them to eat their school breakfast and lunch every day. During the summer, students can continue enjoying meals as Nutrition Services provides meals
at multiple locations throughout the city, free of charge, for all individuals 18 years and younger.
