(This amendment provides $15,813 the second year to level fund the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) programs in each of Staunton's middle schools. 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.)
