Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) fosters a safe and open culture, high expectations for teachers and students, and collaboration in all classrooms.    CUESD is excited to be using this framework (starting the 2022-23 school year) to build a stronger foundation for our students so they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to confidently conquer the challenges that await them and to continue on the path to success!
AVID is not "one more thing to do", but more of a set of tools that aligns with our goals to accelerate and enhance the work that is already happening in Corning Elementary Schools.  By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades.  Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way.  Children learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy and are taught to take structured notes, and ask and answer high-level questions that go beyond routine answers.
