New Site Teams are introduced to AVID's philosophy and instructional practices and more experienced sites are able to choose from a variety of higher-level AVID Communities of Practice that help deepen and refine their understanding of AVID methodologies and strategies to successfully implement AVID in their schools.

Participants can apply for university credit up to six weeks after completion of the last module.
