All students in Jurupa USD benefit from the “AVID Effect.” Jurupa is one of only five districts in the four-county RIMS region using AVID at all sites. The majority of Jurupa students qualify for free/reduced-price lunch and will be the first in their families to attend college. AVID Elementary operates schoolwide to reinforce academic behaviors and higher-level thinking that students take with them to be successful in middle school, high school and college. Elementary students engage in college and career exploration to help them see college as a part of their futures. At the secondary level, AVID provides direct support to students through the AVID elective course. AVID Secondary has also changed teaching practices and academic behaviors across these campuses building on students’ AVID Elementary experience. Over the last three years, the district has seen an 8-percent increase in college enrollment and a 7-percent increase in a-g completion.
