What is AVID?
Proven Achievement. Lifelong Advantage.
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, helps schools and teachers make learning more meaningful and engaging. Research tells us that the most powerful influence on academic achievement is a caring teacher. When students care and connect to both their learning and their teacher, they will succeed!
AVID for Elementary Schools
Putting future leaders on an early path to success in school!
AVID Elementary engages young learners and provides them with the critical skills to become confident, independent thinkers who have a thirst for learning. Teachers use AVID strategies to provide students with:
- Proven ways to succeed in school,
- Writing to learn, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading to learn
- Note-taking and time management skills
- Best ways to work together inside and outside of the classroom
As an AVID Elementary, one of our school-wide goals is to increase the classroom-home connection. One of the ways in which we do this is by having students share what they have written in their week in review sheets (K-2)/daily planners (3-6) with their parents. Parents acknowledge their engagement by signing the planner. Parents are encouraged to provide feedback or ask questions of the teacher in the daily planner. Teachers then track the percentage of parent signatures per class and report out to the building as a whole. Our goal is to have 100% of planners signed daily by a parent/guardian!!
Thank you for choosing GVA-DC for your child! We are happy to have you as a member of the GVA-DC family!
