Applying for AVID 
Families of students who are being offered an opportunity to be in the AVID class receive a letter inviting them to the AVID Family Information Night during which they can learn more about AVID. A student information session is also held during the school day for students who receive the invitation letter. Students who receive the invitation and who are interested in being in AVID must complete the AVID Student Application and be interviewed by AVID staff. Students can also be nominated by a teacher or counselor. Attending the Family Information Night or a teacher/counselor nomination does not guarantee selection. All students who would like to apply to be in AVID must complete and submit the AVID student application and be interviewed to be considered for possible selection. 
Applications will be available starting February of 2018 and will be due early March.
