The Transformational AVID Leadership Community of Practice is for site- and district-level leaders with extensive AVID leadership training and considerable experience leading AVID implementation and refinement. Participants will deepen their investigation of the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework, considering how to ensure all students on any campus get what they need to be college- and career-ready. Organized around the four educator behaviors of Insist on Rigor, Break Down Barriers, Align the Work, and Advocate for Students, this course will challenge participants to refine and apply the essential leadership practices and skills needed for AVID to be a transformational force in classrooms, across schools, and throughout entire districts. While individual principals are strongly encouraged to attend this learning experience, sites with an administrative team are encouraged to register their full team. Prior participation in leadership Communities of Practice is strongly recommended. 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 district administrators, AVID District Directors, site administrators, and AVID Site Coordinators who have completed 2 years of AVID professional learning.
