AVID

We Are an AVID Elementary School

Echo Mountain Intermediate implemented the AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) Elementary Program in the late-2010s. AVID is part of a district-wide effort to create college-ready students.

AVID is a foundational program for elementary sites feeding into the middle and high school programs. It is an embedded sequential academic skills program intended for non-elective, multi-subject, self-contained classrooms across entire grade levels.
