Toledo Public Schools is proud to offer Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) across the district. The mission of AVID is to close the achievement gap by preparing ALL students for college readiness and success in a global society. Educators learn how to implement an instructional framework that is grounded in high expectations of teaching and learning. Students learn skills that focus on writing, reading, collaboration, organization and inquiry across all grade levels and disciplines.

The AVID College and Career Readiness Program is currently being implemented in seven TPS secondary schools and 22 K-8 schools.
