Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is an academic program designed to provide support to students who are in the “academic” middle. The purpose of AVID is to move students from average level classes to more rigorous college-preparatory coursework while providing academic support in this elective. During each AVID class, students receive instruction in reading/writing across the curriculum, note taking & test-taking strategies, study skills, organization and time management. Another aspect of the program focuses on career and college exploration through guest speakers, college tours, and research assignments.
Positive behavior support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.
