• Professional Learning


    AVID professional learning transforms conceptual understandings into usable strategies that are intentional, purposeful, repeatable, and lead to student success. AVID brings educators together to learn how to implement engaging activities in their classrooms, raise their level of commitment to student success and, thus, produce a learning environment where all students are equipped to tackle complex issues, problems, and information.

    AVID professional learning is targeted and specific to what educators do every day. Teachers learn how to use the strategies they experience and practice during trainings to engage their students in daily instruction. They are able to build a classroom culture where rigorous academic instruction combines with social and emotional support to accelerate learning and close the opportunity gap.

    With the unprecedented times we are all experiencing due to COVID-19, many of our face-to-face professional learning events have been impacted. AVID remains committed to delivering the highest quality professional learning experiences and closing the opportunity gap for all students. We know this mission is now more important than ever, so we developed AVID DigitalXP™, AVID Discover™, and AVID Open Access™ to support all educators and deliver high-impact resources and professional learning digitally.

    AVID has always been a community for educators to recharge, get inspiration, and find resilience. We are here for you, every step of the way.
