Narcoossee Middle School Staff Holding Award BannerNarcoossee Middle School in Osceola County has been selected as a National Demonstration School by AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), a nonprofit organization that provides educators with proven, real-world strategies to accelerate the performance of underrepresented students for success in college, career, and life. The school joins approximately 170 other AVID National Demonstration Schools, only 13 others in Florida, and was selected through an application process, screening, and review, which included a site visit. Narcoossee Middle will now be a Learning Lab for other schools, which will in turn empower its teachers and students to share their knowledge and experiences with others.
AVID Chief Executive Officer Sandy Husk, PhD, notes the significance of attaining Demonstration site recognition. “Schools recognized as National Demonstration Sites have proven their ability to successfully implement the AVID Elective course and to take the strategies schoolwide to impact all students,” says Dr. Husk. “Narcoossee Middle was selected as an AVID National Demonstration School because it has implemented the AVID System throughout the school, and can serve as a model for new AVID sites.” The AVID College Readiness System accelerates student learning, uses research-based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systemic reform and change.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for the leaders, teachers, staff members, students, and parents at Narcoossee Middle, and it shows a true commitment to our district’s culture of preparing ALL students for college and career readiness and a successful future as productive, responsible citizens,” said Osceola School District Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace. “This honor of Demonstration status is a testament of how the school and the district are making progress on our journey from Good to Great.”
