Two students from Nicollet Middle School were selected to be part of a four-day national conference attended by educators from around the country to learn more about Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) in June in Minneapolis.
Forty-four seniors in the AVID programs at Burnsville High School and Burnsville Alternative High School were honored at an event on May 8.
They are the fifth group of graduates who have participated in the AVID college readiness program in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. The first graduating class of AVID students numbered 18 in 2014.
It started with a donation of 400 backpacks filled with school supplies for students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 in September 2016.
Ninth-grade students will be off to a great start at Burnsville High School with a new course they’ll all take.
Named “Success 191,” the course will build a foundation of knowledge and skills that will help students make the most of their high school years and be ready for college and career when they graduate.
Three ninth-grade students at Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville have been selected to be part of a four-day national conference that educators from around the country will attend in Minneapolis to learn more about Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) in June.
Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville has been named an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) National Demonstration School because of its success in using the AVID program to help students succeed academically and prepare for college. The recognition was presented at a ceremony March 5, following an extensive on-site review by AVID officials.
Metcalf Junior High will host an information night for parents about the school's Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, especially students in the academic middle, will succeed in the most rigorous honors/ Advanced Placement curriculum while participating in school activities. AVID is a college prep program; it is not remedial.
