The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation awarded AVID Center $2.4 million in grant money to support the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program in central Texas and refine the program’s math and science curriculum.

The money will help implement AVID programs in middle and high schools in four Texas districts and create a feeder pattern to ensure students who attend AVID middle schools transition smoothly into AVID high schools.

AVID Center identified four districts that have high percentages of economically disadvantaged students.

Additionally, AVID will use the grant money to strengthen its math and science curricula and provide summer programs for high school students to maintain grade-level achievement.
