In the 2014-15 school year, RLS received the honor of being an “AVID Highly Certified” site based on the work done the previous year.
Currently, an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) elective is offered at the seventh- and eighth-grade levels. In the summers of 2014 and 2015, teachers from across our seventh- and eighth-grade teams attended an AVID summer conference.
RLS is expanding AVID schoolwide by using AVID strategies across all grade levels and subjects. Currently, 17 staff members have been trained in AVID.
