Media Alert: Jackson Elementary AVID Showcase - 02/13/19

On Friday, February 15, 8 a.m. – noon, Jackson Elementary School, 4340 Edwinstowe Ave., will hold the Jackson Elementary AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Showcase, and the media is invited to attend this event. At this event, educators from around Colorado will be coming to Jackson to see how AVID strategies have been implemented into daily lessons, language, activities, etc.

Jackson Elementary has been an AVID-certified school since 2016. This year, Jackson earned the designation of a National Showcase school. AVID is a program that helps schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach that closes the opportunity gap in order to prepare all students for college, careers, and life.

With AVID, teachers use specific strategies to help students interact with their instruction, take ownership of their learning, and work with their classmates to help understand the material. They learn how to work together better and spend time digging deeper into questions. Jackson teachers have found great success in using the strategies across all grades and departments, pre-k-fifth grade.
