The School Counselors Community of Practice is designed to engage all school counselors using a variety of digital tools to differentiate learning for those who are both new and experienced with AVID. This community emphasizes developing knowledge, skills, and understanding of the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework. Participants will experience AVID strategies as they learn the school counselor’s role in supporting the AVID Elective classroom and college-going culture schoolwide. Participants will acquire the tools necessary to be active members of the college and career readiness team on their campus. Using different AVID methodologies, this Community of Practice will focus on identifying and sharing resources that support student success. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face 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.

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