AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a program designed to support college readiness. AVID’s teaching strategies are used not only in the AVID elective class, but by subject area teachers schoolwide. Some AVID strategies include, Cornell Notes, Socratic seminar, Philosophical Chairs and interactive notebooks. Students benefit from instructional strategies that encourage critical thinking.

Salem/Keizer school district is looking for students who are interested in tutoring in middle school and high school AVID classrooms. Tutoring can be accomplished through University work-study programs (if the university offers it), for credit courses as appropriate, or can be done for pay as a Salem/Keizer tutor employee through the district AVID program. Tutoring is done during the school day with a broad choice of hours, days, and AVID school sites. Additional tutoring sites will become available next year as more schools take on the AVID curriculum.
