Hurricane Harvey Relief: AVID School to AVID School

We have all seen the devastation of Hurricane Harvey along the Texas Gulf Coast. There continues to be a great outpouring of generosity, and AVID educators are no exception. Many have reached out to AVID Center asking how they can assist their fellow educators and students.

We have set up a way for AVID schools to help those impacted by the storm: AVID School to AVID School. This Google Docs form lists the 276 AVID schools in the affected area. If your school would like to help, your AVID Site Coordinator (secondary) or AVID Administrator (elementary) can go here to "adopt" another AVID school in need. Our hope is that two schools will sign up to support each affected school. Affected schools will list their greatest needs, and we hope your school will partner with one of them as an AVID community service project. 

Know that our affected sites are not back to school yet, and many will be out for some time. For some schools in the affected area, it might be several weeks before you see contact information or their area of greatest need. 

Below is the link to sign up. If you have any trouble accessing the Google Doc, please contact your district's IT Team. Thank you in advance for supporting our AVID students and staff along the Gulf Coast.
