    SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING IS AT THE CORE OF AVID

    Academic skills are just some of the contributing factors to college and career success. According to the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development, overwhelming evidence indicates that the development of social and emotional skills and competencies are equally essential for students to thrive in school, careers, and life.

  • HOW DOES AVID ALIGN WITH SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING?

    Long before the social and emotional learning term made its way into the lexicon through the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), AVID had been embedding social and emotional learning into AVID implementation. AVID tenets of high expectations and achievement gained through hard work and determination were predicated on the support received through strong student–teacher relationships and a collaborative classroom environment.
