Important To-Dos for ElevateXP
AVID ElevateXP is a fully online professional learning experience. Each module is designed to be an interactive online learning experience that will require you to have access to different technology tools. Your participation is contingent on access to AVID technology platforms and tools. Please review the checklist below to make sure that you have everything you need before starting your journey.
Before the First Module
- Note your scheduled dates and times.
You will receive a confirmation email when you register for AVID ElevateXP. Please refer to your registration confirmation email for dates and view your session schedule.
- Complete your required eLearning Pre-Work.
As part of your AVID Professional Learning experience, all registrants are required to complete the eLearning Pre-Work prior to attending AVID ElevateXP. Watch this video on how to access your Pre-Work. To ensure a seamless experience, follow the recommendations on this technology checklist.
- Use your own digital device for the training.
All professional learning requires participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the Internet. Participants must use an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones when attending the Community of Practice. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up-to-date. It is highly recommended that participants have both browsers on their device prior to attending the training. Acceptable devices include laptops, Chromebooks, Surface devices, and iPad Pros. Unacceptable devices include iPads, iPad minis, Kindle or Galaxy tablets, and smartphones. For an optimal experience for you and others in your AVID ElevateXP Community of Practice, it is highly recommended that you work in a quiet area away from distractions and background noise.

If you require special devices or need assistance per ADA guidelines, please submit your request at least 2 weeks before your AVID Path to Schoolwide training starts.
