Columbia Public Schools adopted AVID fall of 2013

AVID is changing the lives of many students in our district. It is not just a benefit for the students enrolled in the AVID elective class, but the entire student body benefits from the AVID strategies used by our teaching staff.

AVID Schoolwide

AVID is not just a class; it is also a philosophy, a way of doing the business of school. A strong AVID system transforms the instruction, systems, leadership, and culture of a school, ensuring college readiness for all.
