This strand is designed for middle school counselors new to AVID and focuses on developing knowledge, skills, and understanding of the AVID College and Career Readiness System. Participants will experience AVID strategies and methodologies as they learn the school counselor’s role in supporting the AVID Elective classroom and AVID Schoolwide. Information specific to the school counselor’s participation on the Site Team, data collection, student recruitment and retention, articulation, and implementation of the AVID Secondary Coaching and Certification Instrument (CCI) will provide school counselors the tools necessary to be active members of the AVID Site Team while promoting college and career readiness for all students. Counselors will learn how to use the provided curriculum book as they assist students and parents with skills for building college and career success, organizing time and materials, advancing college preparedness, building career knowledge, and promoting financial literacy. Additional analog and digital resources specific to middle school will be shared.
This strand requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to internet access.
