In its 30-plus years, AVID has proven time and time again that, when given a system of rigorous curriculum and strategic support, students can be academically successful. AVID Elementary is a foundational component of the AVID College Readiness System and supports AVID’s mission and vision to provide a comprehensive model of success for all students, from elementary through higher education.
Based on the same learning foundation that underlies AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact schoolwide structures. Like AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary Essentials focus on the four necessary areas to ensure that all students are poised for academic success: Instruction, Culture, Leadership, and Systems.
At Imagine Tempe, AVID elementary classrooms will encourage organizational tool accountability and responsibility, use of an agenda planner to foster a “plan-ahead” mentality, time management skills, SMART goal-setting skills, note taking strategies (STAR), collaborative learning, and building community with open communication.
