AVID and the Common Core State Standards

                        AVID is the most appropriate partner to achieve student success in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). While the CCSS describes “what” students should know, AVID strategies provide “how” students will learn and master the knowledge and skills needed to meet the standards.

The Common Core State Standards reflect the path that AVID students and educators have been following for more than three decades, a path that spirals upward, establishing a solid foundation of literacy skills in one grade before ratcheting up the rigor in the next. The AVID system has always been inquiry-based, and it supports the tenets that are woven throughout the Common Core Standards; AVID teaches students to think critically as they solve problems and rise to educational challenges. AVID support is effective, reliable, and universal across all content areas and across all grade levels, K-12.
