Introduction

AVID Standards


The BPS-S (AVI) AVID Standards course in Learnbps is Bismarck Public School District's current progress on prioritizing and deconstructing standards to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. The standards are designed to provide guidance so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help students. Plus help students reflect on the knowledge and skills that they need for success.


Identifier Explanation

AVI-08.AP.04

The Bismarck Public School District Standards-Based Progress Report displays grades at the concept level. Therefore Bismarck Public School District has modified the AVID Identifiers to fit into our student information system PowerSchool for Standards-Based grading. Above is a AVID-Standards identifier with smaller muted text showing the addition  to the identifier that are the components that BPS adds to the State code.

AVID grade-specific standards can be identified by their grade and domain.
So that 8.AP for example, stands for Grade 8 and Academic Preparedness with the descriptors.
