Steffen Named AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction
  • Steffen News

Steffen has been formally recognized as an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction, an honor that represents the highest level of AVID implementation.

Steffen Middle School has been formally recognized as an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction, an honor that represents the highest level of AVID implementation fidelity, demonstrating excellence in instructional practice and the promotion of college readiness across the entire school.

Fewer than 4% of all AVID secondary schools across the nation earn the honor of Schoolwide Site of Distinction. Steffen is one of 173 of 4,690 schools to have earned the honor.

“I am extremely proud of each and every one of our teachers and our collective efforts on behalf of ALL students to elevate and enhance best instructional practices in ALL classrooms,” said Dr. Deborah Anderson, Steffen principal.

In order to qualify as a Schoolwide Site of Distinction, Steffen was required to submit data in a self-study based on school-wide metrics in areas including AVID elective class enrollments, use of data for program enhancement and impact on school policies, site and district plans to promote access to rigorous advanced courses, and AVID staff methodologies.

On Thursday, February 22, Steffen Middle School welcomed staff members from the School District of Elmbrook to listen to AVID student panels, observe classrooms, and engage in discussions surrounding the implementation and function of AVID within the Mequon-Thiensville School District. These site visits have become common at many MTSD schools as the district continues to be a statewide leader in AVID implementation.

“I’m so proud of the staff’s unwavering commitment to promote college and career readiness for all students. This is a well-deserved honor,” said Trina Hayden, AVID District Director for the Mequon-Thiensville School District.

This honor follows Homestead High School’s 2017 3-year designation as an AVID National Demonstration School, a distinction that only 2 percent of AVID high schools achieve. Steffen Middle School will hold their special designation for the 2017-2018 school year and will be required to once again submit evaluation data next fall in order to re-obtain their status of distinction.
