How Effectively are You Driving Student Success?

Educational leaders play a pivotal role in the successful implementation of AVID and are the primary catalysts in establishing an environment that fosters academic resilience and encourages students to strive for excellence. They ensure that AVID’s principles align with and support the school’s goals and initiatives by promoting a culture of high expectations and rigorous academic preparedness. Through their commitment to continuous improvement, leaders can empower educators and strengthen the collective educator agency needed to ensure college and career readiness for all students.
