Haskell's AVID Student Criteria
Haskell's AVID site team considers a number of factors when recruiting AVID students.
Typical AVID Student Profile
* In the academic middle
* Average test scores
* College potential with support
* Good attendance
* Good behavior in and out of the classroom
* Has the desire and individual determination to work hard and succeed
* May be first generation in family to attend or graduate college
* Historically underserved in four-year colleges and universities
* Special circumstances
* Demonstrates good citizenship
* Able to work well with others
AVID supports students in their challenging courses and puts them on the college track.
Being in AVID is voluntary. AVID students and guardians sign the AVID Student Agreement indicating their commitment to the program and to their success. The initial commitment is one year. Students are highly encouraged to continue in AVID as they progress through Haskell middle school and throughout high school. According to studies conducted by AVID, students experience the best results after being in the class for at least three years. AVID students usually choose to stay in AVID until they graduate from high school.
