(This amendment provides $106,865 the second year for the implementation of Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) programs in each of Gloucester's middle schools - Page and Peasley. AVID is a program aimed at groups of students who are not traditionally college-bound. The program's goal is to prepare students for more difficult high school and college classes by teaching them how to study and to think critically. There is a strong emphasis on improving the writing and note-taking capabilities of these students. Most of the cost is for teacher training in the methods used by AVID.)
