AVID students are students that are capable of completing a college preparatory path with guidance. These students are capable of taking honors/rigorous courses but desire the support to assist with their confidence and performance. In the identification process a number of criteria are considered, including:• Individual Desire and Determination• Conduct: Behavior and Attitude• Grades• NWEA and ISTEP test scoresWhile all the criteria are considered for acceptance into the program, no single criteria will necessarily eliminate a student from consideration. Students participating in special education, gifted and talented programs, and ENL will be considered for AVID based on the criteria listed above. Currently, there are a number of students from these groups successfully participating in the AVID program.
