Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

WASD is in year 2 of implementing AVID cohorts of students and school-wide practices to enhance our college and career readiness supports for students.  In the 2019-2020 school year, we had our first cohort of students receiving specialized instruction for college and career readiness through the AVID Elective class.  Since then we have expanded the AVID Elective class to offer a cohort for more students. AVID strategies align with our school goal of rigor and we continue to spread these strategies across the school building for the benefit of all students.

Please see for more information about the support as a whole.  You may also contact the Site Coordinators at Waupun Area Junior/Senior High School.
