28 March Morton Magnet Named National Demonstration Site for AVID March 28, 2013 By News News Morton Magnet Middle School was recently named a national demonstration site for Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), a fourth grade through postsecondary college readiness system that is designed to increase schoolwide learning and performance. National demonstration schools are teaching and learning centers that model the AVID system and exemplify AVID strategies and methodologies. Morton, which joins 125 other AVID national demonstration sites across the country, was selected through an application screening and review process that included a site visit by a validation team from AVID headquarters in San Diego. Adopted by nearly 4,800 elementary, middle and high schools in 48 states and 16 countries and U.S. territories, AVID serves more than 450,000 students. Congratulations to Morton staff and students on this great accomplishment! Comments are closed.
