Westwood Receives National Recognition for High Performance



Westwood has been selected to continue as a National Demonstration School by AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination).  AVID is implemented in approximately 5,600 schools in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and 16 other countries/territories and impacts more than 900,000 students annually.  There are approximately 150 AVID National Demonstration Schools that are selected through an application process, screening, and review that include a site visit.  AVID Chief Executive Officer Sandy Husk, PhD, notes the significance of attaining Demonstration site recognition. "Schools recognized as National Demonstration sites have proven their ability to successfully implement the AVID Elective course and take the strategies schoolwide to impact all students," says Dr. Husk. "Westwood was selected as an AVID National Demonstration School because it has implemented the AVID System throughout the school and can serve as a model for new AVID sites."
