AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an international program with the mission to "ensure that all students, and most especially the least served students who are in the middle" succeed in a rigorous curriculum, complete a rigorous college preparatory path, enter mainstream activities of the school, increase their enrollment in four-year colleges and become educated and responsible participants and leaders in a democratic society. Students in seven Brevard Public Schools have benefited from this program. The cost for continuing this program in these schools for the 2008-2009 school year is $20,230.00. The services provided through this contract include training, materials and support from the AVID national, divisional and state offices.
