Oxford School District invites parents, community to AVID informational meetings

Oxford School District Public Relations

The Oxford School District invites parents and the Oxford community to attend informational meetings about the AVID Program, an option the district is exploring to increase student achievement and close the achievement gap in Oxford schools. Informational meetings — planned for Monday, Feb. 20 and Thursday, Feb. 23 — are open to the public and will introduce the AVID Program to those interested in knowing more about the elective program designed to help students excel in school and apply for college.

The first AVID Information Meeting on Monday, Feb. 20 will center on how the AVID Program would directly impact Oxford Intermediate and Oxford Middle School students should school officials implement the program. The second informational meeting on Thursday, Feb. 23 will focus on how the program would directly impact Oxford High School students.

Both meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Oxford Middle School Kayla Sue Mize Auditorium. Oxford Middle School is located at 222 Bramlett Boulevard in Oxford.
