The Site Coordinators Level 1 Community of Practice provides participants with the foundational knowledge, skills, tools, and resources needed to manage a strong AVID implementation and accelerate the schoolwide impact of their AVID College and Career Readiness System. AVID Site Coordinators will examine the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework and the Coaching and Certification Instrument. In doing so, they will explore how to leverage and align the four AVID Schoolwide Domains of Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture to create sustainable change that transforms educators and entire campuses. This Community of Practice explores the essential roles site coordinators play in achieving the mission of college and career readiness for all students. Differentiation will be provided to address the unique needs of elementary and secondary site coordinators. 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 elementary and secondary Site Coordinators who are new contracted sites, new to existing sites, or relaunching AVID at their site.
