This year Jackson began the AVID program. This program will continue at Bryant Jr. High. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is just that... it gives students tools to achieve. Such as increased organization, proper note-taking, how to ask questions and think critically, how to propel themselves through inquiry and much more! AVID is not an extra subject like math or language arts... AVID is a set of tools used across all subjects. They are habits for student success and scholarly thinking.
