I had a student who was in AVID for all four years of high school....she never attended those "expensive" trips. Who went on them then?? There was only one AVID teacher at our school

I must say I don't like how much all of this has cost, but in my school the teachers use those strategies and they are very helpful.. Our AVID teacher has a good rapport with his students and does an excellent job teaching our kids some very good strategies and skills.
However, the real test is in the data so show how the program has helped those students. I have not seen any of said data.

  • Telling the truth

  • From the News Release
    PeoriaStory will tell the stories that likely won’t be told by the mainstream/corporate media. It will question local political candidates for their views on controversial topics. It will cover and profile off-beat movements and people. It will take stands on issues such as the Kellar trail. It will also serve as a forum for liberal and progressive events, and welcomes news releases from groups working for the public good. PeoriaStory will be a fresh, new voice for the Peoria area blogosphere, and offer a liberal and progressive perspective for our times.
