Paramount AVID Introduction

In 2014, Paramount Unified School District adopted the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) system in an effort to help prepare our students for college and beyond. Currently, AVID is being applied across the district throughout our various elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, alike. With the adoption of the AVID system, we aim to apply best practices across content areas and support students' critical thinking through writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading (WICOR).
