As a national demonstration site for AVID, we were so pleased to host AVID Preview Day today with visitors from the AVID National Organization, America’s Promise, DC Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools and other FCPS schools. We had a wonderful group of AVID students who shared their experiences in the program through a student panel and answered a variety of questions from our guests. Our guests were also able to visit classrooms to not only see an AVID elective class but to see how we are spreading AVID strategies across our school. It was a day to highlight the great work that has been done to attain this national recognition. We were honored to have Dr. Garza present to accept a certificate from AVID Executive Director, Mr. Jim Nelson, recognizing our status as a National Demonstration Site. We look forward to continuing this work and finding ways to continually improve what we are doing.
