Important To-Dos for Path
Path trainings support educators and the students they serve to reach their full potential and successfully prepare for college and careers. Participants will experience AVID strategies and methodologies and learn how to focus instruction, leadership, systems, and culture to strategically improve the performance of all students.
Before the Training
- Note your scheduled dates and times.
You will receive a confirmation email when you register for Path to Schoolwide. 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 Path to Schoolwide experience, all registrants are required to complete the eLearning Pre-Work prior to attending AVID Path to Schoolwide. Watch this video on how to access your Pre-Work. To ensure a seamless experience, follow the recommendations on this technology checklist.
- Plan to bring your own digital device and headphones to the training.
All professional learning requires participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the Internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the training. 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 iPad minis, iPads, Kindle or Galaxy tablets, and smartphones.
- Request Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) support, if needed.
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.
