Retire The Certification Binder - Go Electronic!

I have been an AVID Teacher and Coordinator at Adams City Middle School in Commerce City, CO for 10 years. I recently noticed our AVID Certification binder has a weight problem.

Loss of an AVID Friend

By Rob Gira, Executive Vice President, AVID Center

Last Saturday night, we lost a great educator and friend when Michael Solis passed away after a long battle with cancer. Michael was a veteran staff developer for us, but more importantly, he was a wonderful husband, father, and mentor to many family members, colleagues, and students.

His wife, Dori, posted on Michael’s Facebook site a moving tribute Saturday night, and her words were echoed by hundreds of others—family, friends, former students, colleagues.

“My beautiful husband, friend, and partner went to be with our Lord at 10:14pm... the blessings and miracles that God brought through him will be remembered...More
