Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

AVID offers a variety of classroom activities, lesson plans, professional learning videos, and timely articles that are relevant to students. These tools help educators implement and refine instructional practices. They also help educators provide the key academic and social supports students need to thrive. Schools can utilize the professional learning modules and materials for in-service training and can access all of these resources year-round. At Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology we have AVID Strategies School Wide as well as the AVID Elective class. All students receive instruction in strategies that focus on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading. These strategies are research based strategies to support all students in academic success. In the AVID elective course, students receive AVID curriculum instruction as well as in school tutorials time to support academic, social and emotional success in preparation for the students' next step.
