Former AVID Parent Testimonial
Hi Ms. Pienta,I wanted to thank you and Ms. Sibayan again for all you do in AVID. We are settled in here in Lexington Tennessee and Jarrett has made it through 2 grading periods with flying colors. He has consistently received A's and B's (mostly A's) and his study skills are light-years ahead of the rest of his peers. Although the counselors have never heard of AVID here, it would be an excellent area to start it.He is in Art this year as well and is enjoying every minute.Thank you again!!Tammy Jones

Educational Ops by State
Military K-12 Partners
"As military families move to accept new assignments, children often face many challenges related to education. The Interstate Compact on Education Opportunity for Military Children is working to remove barriers to educational success for children of military members. The Compact was developed by the Council of State Governments, education and military family experts, and the Department of Defense. States that sign on to the compact agree to work collectively with other compact states to create uniform standards of practice regarding the transfer of records, course placement, graduation requirements, redundant or missed testing, entrance-age variations and other transition issues."
