Dear Student,

You are invited to be part of AVID at Franklin Police and Fire High School. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and is an elective class designed to prepare you for admission to a four-year university after graduation from high school. AVID is for students who want to go to college and are willing to work hard to get there. Does this description apply to you? If so, AVID is the class for you!

During AVID, students learn the skills needed to succeed in college. Furthermore, AVID prepares students for college entrance exams like the PSAT, ACT, and SAT. Students have tutorial groups twice a week with tutors who help with difficult subjects. AVID students also visit college campuses and area businesses to learn more about the many choices available after high school.

To become an AVID student, please submit your application to Ms. Bonfante as soon as possible. There are limited spaces available, so the sooner you apply, the better. Your parents must give permission for you to be enrolled in the AVID elective class so please have them sign your application form. You will also need to sign it. If you or your parents have any questions, you may speak with Dr. Nerini our school counselor, or Mrs. Bonfante, the AVID coordinator.


Lorenzo Cabrera, Principal

Student Contract

Advancement Via Individual Determination
Name of Student: _______________________________________________________________________________

Enrollment Date: ____________________ Student Number:________________________________________

AVID is a system that prepares students for four-year college eligibility.
Student goals:

  1. Academic success in high school/college preparatory classes.

  2. Successful completion of high school/college eligibility requirements.

  3. Enrollment in four-year college or university after high school graduation.

Student Responsibilities:

  1. Maintain satisfactory citizenship and attendance in all classes.

  2. Maintain the AVID binder contents including, but not limited to, assignment sheets and Cornell notes.

  3. Complete all homework assignments and commit to a minimum of two hours of homework each night.

  4. Maintain a grade of 81 (or 2.5) or higher in all classes.

Student Agreement:

I agree to accept enrollment into the AVID elective class, which will offer academic support to me. I want to succeed and I understand I must take individual responsibility for my own success. I understand that in order to give fair consideration to my involvement with AVID, I must commit to remaining enrolled in the AVID elective for at least one year and that I will be allowed to remain in AVID only if I meet the student responsibilities outlined above. I also understand that studies show I will be most likely to demonstrate academic improvement if I remain in AVID for at least three years. I will be most likely to achieve my goal of enrollment in a four-year college if I remain in AVID through my senior year in high school.

Student Signature: ____________________________________________

Support Statement: We agree to support the efforts of this student in meeting the goals outlined above.
