Detailed Description

PB Reporting 

Written By: Taylor Nachtigal,  

Rochester administrators are hoping a new program holds the key to pulling more average students into top-level honors and AP classes, with the ultimate goal of preparing them for college.

The program, called AVID, which stands for "advancement via individual determination," won't target those students struggling the most, rather it will set its sights on the middle-of-the-road students to hone the skills they'll need after high school.

Those are the students that make their way through schools without academic recognition — positive or negative, according to the program's website.

The extra help will be offered as a class, to teach students practical skills, such as accountability, time management, proper note-taking, organization, planning — essentially, the skills required to "be an independent learner," said Assistant Superintendent Brenda Lewis.

The course's teacher will check in regularly not only with students, but the students' teachers for other classes to make sure they're on track.

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
