Wellington Middle School was just named an AVID Site of DIstinction for 2017-2018, which is the second time we have earned this recognition. An AVID Site of Distinction is an AVID school that is recognized as the top 1% of AVID schools in the nation, according to AVID.org. These schools demonstrate that AVID strategies are schoolwide and not just housed only in the AVID elective. "An AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction represents the highest level of AVID implementation fidelity demonstrating excellence in instructional practice and the promotion of college readiness schoolwide. We applaud you for your diligence in attaining this achievement, and we look forward to your continued efforts in transforming the lives of students across your campus," writes AVID. Congratulations, Wellington Middle School Staff and Students! We continue to raise the bar and lead the pack! See http://www.avid.org/avid-schoolwide.ashx for more information.
