Regarding the 2020-2021 School Year 

    Dear AVID students and families,

    By now you have seen your student’s schedule for the 2020-2021 school year and have noticed that 7th or 8th grade AVID is not listed as their Exploratory class.  Due to the reduction of electives in our new schedule and also the collaborative nature of the class, we will not be able to offer 7th or 8th grade AVID this year.  We intend to offer it as an Exploratory class for the 2021-2022 school year, and if so your student’s acceptance into the program will still stand.

    We wish all of our AVID students lots of good luck this year!


    Mrs. Rohman and Mrs. Burgess
