A path to better teaching.

The AVID Path series features a rigorous curriculum that promotes student achievement at the highest levels; it lays out a pathway to student success. Based on the teacher-developed, classroom-proven AVID System, the series offers guides and materials for teachers, administrators, academic counselors, career center advisors, and anyone else who wants to help students fulfill their potential and successfully prepare for college.

AVID Center provides two-day trainings for content teachers in English, mathematics, science, and history/social science, as well as trainings designed for teachers of English language learners, Student Success Path training for teachers of non-core subjects, and Implementation Middle Level/High School training for new AVID Elective Teachers.

Participants will become familiar with AVID methodologies and learn what to anticipate when a school focuses on reorganizing its structures, processes, protocols, and systems to strategically give purpose to efforts to improve performance of all students.

Blended Learning is now available for the Path Implementation Middle Level/High School participants only. For additional information, please read the Welcome to LMS Letter after you receive the registration confirmation email.
