The AVID MS Upload is used in conjunction with the AVID Secondary Site Data Collection Aid 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 the middle school level, this upload will not be utilized.

Since course completion records are not reported for middle school students, it is necessary for the LEA to identify the 6-8 grade AVID students 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).

This file should contain all 6-8 grade AVID middle school students for both the year of the report and the prior year due to reporting specifications which include the prior year data. Starting with 2021-2022 reporting, it will no longer be required to load a prior year since the AVID middle school students will be stored by year.
