The One-Day District Leadership (ODDL) Community of Practice is designed to engage district-based leadership embarking on their AVID journey or enhancing their AVID College and Career Readiness System (ACRS) for all students districtwide. The AVID College and Career Readiness Framework supports current district strategic plans, initiatives, and the essential role of district leadership in AVID implementation. This learning experience will focus on the direct impact of district leadership on high-quality AVID implementation. District practices that support AVID Schoolwide with a focus on rigorous academic preparedness, opportunity knowledge, and student agency are sustained through the four AVID Schoolwide Domains: Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture. To respect the schedules of our district leaders, this learning experience will have an abbreviated schedule. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face, blended, or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all 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 session. 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.
