AVID, which stands for Advancement via Individual Determination, is a K-12 college- and career-readiness system that helps develop learners who can self-direct, self-evaluate, self-monitor, and self-advocate.

The student-centered approach provides relevant professional development as well as classroom resources that align with state learning standards and the District’s commitment to placing students on a pathway toward a rewarding occupation. AVID trains thousands of educators each year to close the opportunity gap so they can effectively prepare all students for college, career and life beyond school.
