Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID)
Southridge Tech Middle School staff participates in an array of professional development,which is aligned with AVID strategies and Microsoft Technologies. We employ school-wide AVID strategies and practices to transform our Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture of a school. All students belong to a college team in which they attend college and career field trips to inspire and motivate students. Our students are given opportunities to learn about and utilize the research-based Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) strategies in the classroom to help prepare them for high school and college.
