School Improvement Grants (SIG)

AVID "Schoolwide" is a Vital Component of a SIG Turnaround Model

AVID strategies implemented throughout a school can impact the lives and futures of all students. "Schoolwide" AVID reflects systemic changes in attitude. AVID is "schoolwide" when a strong AVID program transforms the leadership, structure, instruction, and culture of a school, ensuring college readiness for all students.

Definitions for the AVID Schoolwide Domains:

AVID Schoolwide Leadership: sets the vision and the tone that promotes college readiness and high expectations for all students in the school.

AVID Schoolwide Systems: when systems are in place that support governance, curriculum & instruction, data collection & analysis, professional learning, and student & parent outreach to ensure college readiness.

AVID Schoolwide Instruction: when the entire instructional staff utilizes AVID strategies, other best instructional practices, and 21st Century tools to ensure college readiness for all students.

AVID Schoolwide Culture: when the AVID philosophy progressively shifts the system of beliefs and behaviors thus increasing all students meeting college readiness requirements.
