Bis-Man public schools receive AVID grant
Bismarck and Mandan Public Schools have been awarded a $2 million Bush Foundation grant to implement and sustain AVID. Currently, Bismarck High School, Wachter Middle School, and Mandan Middle School have implemented AVID. The grant will assist these schools in advancing their AVID programs and allow other schools in the two districts to implement AVID, which stands for Achieve Via Individual Determination. The program focuses on helping all students develop the skills necessary to be successful in college.
In southern Minnesota and Bismarck-Mandan in North Dakota, AVID says this initiative could give as many as 22,000 students access to educators who can help them develop the social, organizational, and learning skills necessary for postsecondary success. One of the goals of the Bush Foundation is to increase postsecondary success rates by making investments that impact kids who are not already on track to attain postsecondary success. The Foundation is particularly interested in programs that address achievement gaps linked to race and economic status.
