East Union High School, Manteca

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a four-year program dedicated to closing the achievement gap by providing underrepresented students with the support and tools needed to navigate through the rigor of A-G requirements and prepare them for college. The program was dropped in 2012 due to a shift in funding, a problematic change especially because it created discontinuity for students who left AVID feeder schools to attend EUHS. The team of six teachers will receive AVID summer institute training in order to re-implement AVID at their school site, and will continue to collaborate throughout the school year.
