(This amendment expands the AVID program into Culpeper County. AVID is currently available in eight other school divisions. The program aims to prepare middle and high school students for eligibility and success in four-year colleges and universities. The programs have been successful in increasing the enrollment of under-represented and low-income students in advanced middle and high school courses and in post-secondary education. The funding would pay for: the required training; materials necessary to implement the program; site license fees to use the program; student tutors; and field trips for students to visit colleges and universities in Virginia.)
