AVID summer institute 2013

AVID Summer Institute is being held June 5-7 at the Hawai`i Convention Center.

Nearly 1,700 educators, 90 percent of which are from the state of Hawai`i, are taking part in a nationally recognized professional education training conference being hosted in Hawai`i for the first time.

The AVID Summer Institute is being held June 5-7 at the Hawai`i Convention Center, offering interactive training and instructional sessions for schoolteachers, counselors, and administrators serving students in grades K-12.  This is the first of nine AVID Summer Institutes taking place nationwide this summer.

AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) is a systemic instructional methodology designed to increase the number of students – especially those considered underserved – enrolling in four-year colleges and succeeding with their education.

Last year, more than 500 Hawai`i educators flew to California and Texas to participate in the AVID Summer Institute.  This year, with the Hawai`i Convention Center serving as host site, the number of participating Hawai`i educators has tripled, with attendees from throughout O`ahu and the Neighbor Islands.  Organizers originally projected 1,000 attendees, but nearly 1,700 participants are registered.

AVID benefits more than 700,000 students in over 4,900 schools and 28 post-secondary institutions in 46 states, the District of Columbia, and 16 countries and territories.
