Essential #1 - AVID student selection must focus on students in the middle, with academic potential, who would benefit from AVID support to improve their academic record and begin college preparation.
For the interview process I have our AVID Seniors interview the incoming 8th graders at both La Colina and La Cumbre. The purpose of the interview was to get to know the students and answer their concerns or questions about Avid. We are also able to offer advice on how to prepare for avid and offer our personal experiences and knowledge about the program. The interview process allows us to see a face with the application and get to know the students on a more personal basis.
