Important To-Dos

AVID ElevateXP transforms conceptual understandings into usable strategies that are intentional, purposeful, and replicable and that lead to student success. AVID ElevateXP brings educators together to learn how to implement engaging activities in their classrooms, raise their level of commitment to student success, and thereby produce a learning environment where all students are equipped to tackle complex issues, problems, and information. AVID ElevateXP is a virtual, modular professional learning experience.

This professional learning experience includes interactive online learning and networking that will require you to have access to different technology tools and be an active participant with your live facilitator and colleagues. Your participation is contingent upon 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.

  • Complete your required eLearning Pre-Work.
    As part of your AVID ElevateXP experience, all registrants are required to complete the eLearning Pre-Work prior to attending the training.
  • Use your own, fully charged digital device for the training.
    All professional learning requires participants to have their own, fully charged device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must use an acceptable device, a 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, Edge, or Firefox) need to be up to date. It is highly recommended that participants have at least two 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.
