The tutors for Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) at Salina Intermediate and Stout Middle School participated in 16 hours of training at the Administrative Service Center. The tutors are college students that are strong role models and are dedicated to helping develop a culture of college readiness for students. The tutors will facilitate tutorial groups twice a week in the AVID Elective classroom with an emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking through inquiry, collaborative teamwork, study skills, organization and reading skills. We would like to extend a great big WELCOME to our tutors!!
