AVID CCSD Tampa 2017

CCSD Educators Prepare for Implementation of AVID Program with Summer Professional Development

Educators from Baptist Hill MHS, Haut Gap MS, Morningside MS, Simmons Pinckney MS, St. Johns HS, and the new CCSD Early College High School recently attended professional development sessions at the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Summer Institute in Tampa, Florida.

Ms. Melissa Kemp, AVID Director and Mr. Richard Gordon, Executive Director of Career and Technology Education facilitated the group’s working sessions. By the end of the productive week of professional development and planning meetings, the group had completed their AVID implementation plan, and ensured its alignment with the district Strategic Plan for the 2017-2018 school year.

Participating educators also attended individual strand sessions in their content and leadership areas and left with specific strategies on how to help students be college and career ready.

Thanks to all that made this opportunity possible!
