Have you ever wondered what teachers do after students leave on Early Release days? They learn! Teachers at Palatka Jr.-Sr. High School, Crescent City Jr.-Sr. High School, and Interlachen Jr.-Sr. High School spent Tuesday afternoon learning about AVID and WICOR! The best part of this professional development? Teachers were teaching teachers, sharing ideas, and collaborating on steps to move forward. Teachers were enthusiastic, open-minded, and excited to learn how to energize their classrooms with WICOR. IJSHS even had a special message for their teachers from a former AVID student. It was an amazing afternoon! #ProudtobePCSD

Putnam County School District educators had the opportunity to visit Freedom High School in Orlando, Florida to see an AVID Showcase. Freedom High School is an AVID Demonstration School with 2,600 students. The school implemented AVID in 2005. During the visit our district team learned how the school implemented AVID Schoolwide. They visited classrooms and listened to a panel of students and teachers talk about how AVID has changed their lives and their school. Aaron Gieselman, Assistant Principal of CCJSHS, said, "I loved the banners that celebrated student achievement all over the school." Our team was so excited to bring back some wonderful ideas of how to make AVID schoolwide a reality here in Putnam County! #ProudtobePCSD
