AVID Site Coordinator, Counselor, Site-Based Administrator, Teacher

This strand is designed for counselors, teachers, site coordinators, administrators, and those involved in college readiness support programs who are experienced with AVID concepts and methodologies. Using different AVID methodologies, the strand will focus on how to support AVID students (especially those in grades 11 and 12) with the college application process, including financial aid and scholarship opportunities, college admissions, college entrance exams, special populations, and college “fit.” Strategies will also be shared on how to establish and expand a college-going culture schoolwide. This strand is ideal for educators who want to increase the level of academic rigor and discourse in their classrooms and the implementation of technology to further student learning.

This strand 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 strand. 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 web browser need to be up to date.

  • Acceptable devices include laptops, Chromebooks, Surface devices, iPads, and iPad Pros.
  • Unacceptable devices include mini iPads, Kindle or Galaxy tablets, and smartphones.
