2006-2007 WASC Report
  • In addition, an AVID program targets students
    who have the potential to succeed in college but
    are generally considered to require extra support
    and motivation to attend college. All AVID
    students participate in routine evaluation and
    refinement of their Personal Learning Plan.
    Conversations overheard among students suggest
    AVID students are asked by non-AVID students to
    share information regarding college application
    requirements and deadlines.

8
WASC Report, Continued
  • Seek ways to increase the frequency that
    students interact with their four-year planner
    and supplement those interactions with meetings
    and discussions with parents, counselors, and
    teachers. Strategies used within the AVID program
    may be useful.
  •  
  • Seek ways to increase the use of AVID strategies
    school-wide.

9
WASC Report, continued
  • A highly successful AVID program keeps students
    in and out of the AVID program informed about
    college application deadlines and other
    post-secondary options.
