Identified as one of the “best-of-the-best,” Oxnard High School Principal Eric Riegert will join 11 other AVID National Demonstration School principals in the inaugural meeting of the California AVID Principals’ Leadership Collaborative (APLC) in San Diego on March 15. Riegert and the other principals were selected because of their leadership abilities that drive high academic expectations for all students, and because they are leading the way to implement the AVID College Readiness System schoolwide. The group of 12 distinguished principals will serve as role models for AVID site leadership involvement, showcase their National Demonstration Schools and best practices to potential AVID sites and districts, and work closely with AVID Center leadership to provide counsel as the organization launches new initiatives.
According to Ralf Swenson, Superintendent of the Grossmont Union High School District, “The AVID Principal Leadership Collaborative provides an opportunity to demonstrate the crucial role principals play in the development of strong and effective AVID schools. Exceptional AVID experiences for kids rely on exceptional instructional leadership and administrative support.”
