AVID Program Begins At Channel View
Select ninth-grade students at Channel View School for Research have been selected to participate in the newly implemented AVID program. The program targets the middle achieving students that often go unrecognized. Historically, schools have focused on the low and high achieving students without acknowledging those students who fall in the middle.
The AVID program gives a "boost" to participants through a curriculum that focuses on writing, Cornell note taking, study skills, in-class tutorials and organization skills. AVID is directly proportionate to the student's motivation, determination to succeed, and exploration of longterm goals of attending college and future careers.
The AVID Site Team consists of core teachers, support staff and administration who work together to implement the AVID methodologies in ninth grade classes and school wide.
