AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction is the highest level of AVID Certification given to AVID school sites that implement AVID with high levels of fidelity and demonstrated schoolwide impact.

High schools meeting target percentages for all three Process Metrics and two of six Impact Metrics, or middle schools meeting target percentages for all three Process Metrics and both Impact Metrics are recognized as AVID Secondary Schoolwide Sites of Distinction.

Currently, there are two LAUSD Schoolwide Sites of Distinction:

 

     -Academic Leadership Community @ Contreras LC

     -Panorama High School

 

 

AVID Demonstration Schools are exemplary models of the AVID College Readiness System demonstrating the very best AVID strategies and methodologies in both the AVID Elective and schoolwide college readiness practices. Schools and districts interested in implementing AVID or improving their own AVID College Readiness System can arrange to visit these sites and experience a highly successful schoolwide AVID.

 

At an AVID Demonstration school, visitors can observe:

          -Dedicated and successful implementation of Instruction, Systems, Leadership and Culture

          -Strong and committed leadership

          -Evidence of outstanding student achievement

          -Models of excellent inquiry-based AVID tutorials

          -AVID as a schoolwide approach to school improvement

          -A schoolwide college-going culture with college readiness as a basic expectation

          -A center of learning for AVID best practices

          -A showplace for the synergy and excitement a strong AVID college readiness system creates

 

To arrange a visit to a Demonstration School, please contact Lynn Nelson at lnelson@avidcenter.org or (858) 380-4737.
