Jackson Creek Elementary will operate as a Schoolwide AVID school (K-5th grade). AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is grounded in a Growth Mindset, meaning that all children have strengths and can learn to build on those strengths.
AVID provides a framework of learning through a variety of strategies, referred to as WICOR.
WICOR stands for:
Through these strategies students will learn to navigate their academic world successfully today, as well as to prepare them for success in middle school and beyond. Every teacher will be trained in AVID.
Culturally Relevant Teaching
Another strand of AVID and also a core tenant of how we will operate at Jackson Creek Elementary is through Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT). CRT ensures that teaches have the skills, attitudes and dispositions necessary to teach all students by building on their funds-of-knowledge, and utilizing home language and culture as sources of strength to create meaningful and engaging lessons and making curriculum relevant to students’ lives.
