Loading District – AVID

The AVID Upload found on the File Center under District is used in conjunction with the AVID reports found under the Student>Student Custom Reports>AVID folder. 

This upload/report is for the Advancement Via Individual Determination program.  If your district does not offer this at either the middle school or elementary level, this upload will not be utilized.

AVID Middle School – Elective and Excel

The AVID Middle School upload is used in the Student Custom Reports>AVID>AVID Secondary Site Data Collection Aid report.

Since course completion records are not reported for middle school students, it is necessary for the LEA to identify the 6-8 grade AVID elective and excel students in separate files for reporting purposes.

Note: There is no high school AVID upload since we can utilize the service IDs to identify grades 9-12 in AVID (N1290001- Advancement Via Individual Determination I; N1290002 – Advancement Via Individual Determination II; N1290030 – Advancement Via Individual Determination III; N1290033 – Advancement Via Individual Determination IV).

Files should contain all 6-8 grade AVID middle school students – one for elective, and if offered, one for excel for both the year of the report and the prior year due to reporting specifications which include the prior year data. If you have loaded a prior year file(s) already, you will only have to upload a current year AVID middle school file(s).

AVID Elementary

The AVID Elementary upload is used in the Student Custom Reports>AVID>AVID Elementary Site Data Collection Aid report.

Since there is no identifying data for AVID reported to PEIMS for elementary students, it is necessary to upload the AVID elementary students.
