AVID Parent Volunteers Needed

Franklin’s Powderpuff Football game is right around the corner, and AVID has the opportunity to run the concession stand at this very popular game.

Last year we made over $1,500 in this one night for the AVID program! This year we hope to make as much or more to use toward the fall and spring field trips as well as Senior scholarships.

The date of the event is October 23, 2018. We have two time slots: 4:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.

If you are interested in volunteering , please email Christina Buechler at cmbuechl@egusd.net with the following information:

What are AVID parent expectations?

AVID parents are expected to encourage their students to achieve academically, to maintain regular contact with the site AVID coordinator and to become involved in the activities of the AVID program.

What happens in the AVID program?

The AVID Four-Year Elective program is three-pronged: 

1)   Students receive academic instruction in writing note-taking, studying, test-taking, and organizing. 

2)   Students receive academic support from tutors through collaborative tutorial groups and peer counseling.

3)   Students are motivated to pursue academic excellence through goal setting, rigorous classes, cultural and college field trips, classroom guest speakers, and AVID team building.

How do you recognize an AVID student?

The AVID student carries a notebook, takes notes in all classes, is prepared for class, is a positive role model for others, and is "on track" for college.

The AVID team is no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.

If you already submitted your application, then you should be notified by the end of March whether we were able to accept you or not.

Thank you for your interest in the AVID program!
