Metcalf to host AVID parent information night

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.

Nicollet’s AVID program serves as model to other schools

A group of teachers and administrators from Twin Cities Metro area schools visited Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville to learn about how the school has implemented its Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program on Oct. 23. The event was one of only a handful of AVID “showcases” in the Midwest this year, designed to provide an opportunity for educators to see an AVID implementation, share best practices, and learn more about AVID in a hands-on manner.
