Shout out to teachers and administrators from Little Chico Creek Elementary, Durham Elementary and Sycamore Middle School for their attendance at AVID Summer Institutes this year! These Butte educators joined thousands of others in learning more about building relational capacity, supporting students in higher levels of inquiry, strategies to more deeply WICORize lessons using methodologies to support Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading, and spent time creating site plans to guide their work this year.

When I say BUTTE, you say ROCKS…. #ButteROCKS! Great job, Butte Teachers
