Oklahoma State Department of Education
Grants of up to $50,000 to Oklahoma public middle and high schools including charter schools to encourage low income and minority students to enroll in advanced placement courses and receive the educational support they need to succeed. Teachers receive extensive training in order to help their students keep up with the rest of the AP class.
The purpose of the AVID program is to close the achievement gap for minority and non-traditional AP students by advancing those students into rigorous coursework while providing support. AVID teachers work in teams that receive extensive training. Schools provide tutors for their AVID students as part of a support system.
Successful schools will see an increase in the number of minority students taking AP classes and exams as well as an increase in qualifying scores on those exams.
AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination - allows teachers to teach rigorous AP/Pre-AP curriculum without leaving behind students. AVID takes students who have the determination to succeed and works with them to get the tools to succeed. AVID breaks down the barriers of race, gender, ethnicity and socio-economics and allows all students the chance to succeed in rigorous coursework.
