The Site Administrators Level 1 – Secondary Community of Practice is for principals, assistant principals, and other site-level administrators. This training is a match for principals and other administrators who are: 1.) Launching AVID on a campus, 2.) Have no AVID experience but are beginning work at an existing AVID site, or 3.) At an existing AVID site and looking to reset their AVID system. This experience provides participants with foundational knowledge, skills, and resources for a strong AVID implementation. Grounded in the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework and organized by the four AVID Schoolwide Domains of Systems, Leadership, Instruction, and Culture, this Community of Practice explores the essential roles principals and other site-level administrators fill to achieve the mission of college and career readiness for all students. Special attention will be paid to the AVID Elective course and AVID at a schoolwide level to build participants’ capacity as AVID instructional leaders. While individual principals are strongly encouraged to attend this learning experience, sites with an administrative team are encouraged to register their full team. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced in this Community of Practice 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.
This learning experience is for site administrators who are at new contracted sites, new to existing sites, or relaunching AVID at their site.
