Foundation Programs 2010-2011

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

  • Students who participate in AVID have a 99.1% high school graduation rate and help school districts to close the achievement gap.
  • AVID is an acronym that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. This organization is an in-school support system for students in grades 9-12 who fall somewhere in the middle academically and prepares them for collegiate eligibility and success.
  • The Foundation supports several $1,000 competitive college scholarships for each high school AVID program in Montgomery County. These scholarships level the playing field for minority, rural, low income, and any student without a college-going tradition in their family.

Great Idea Teacher Grants

  • User-friendly (up to) $1,00 grants awarded to teachers who want to bring a classroom or school project into fruition for the benefit of student achievement. Any teacher in Montgomery County Schools can apply for this grant

Academic Awards Recognition Program

  • For the past 20 years the Foundation has recognized with awards, receptions, media recognition and banquet dinners the students in CMCSS who maintain academic excellence. These are first, second and third year recipients honored who maintain a 93 average for two consecutive semesters. Over 8,000 students have been awarded this high honor to date.

Kin-Der-Kits for Elementary Schools

  • Kin-Der Kits are donated to parents at Kindergarten Round-up in May to help

Prepare incoming kindergartners for school. Kits include basic school supplies, materials to help practice fundamentals (colors, numbers, alphabet, etc.) as well as documents required for registration, a readiness checklist, and lunch information.

These kits help parents understand what their child needs to know to have a successful kindergarten experience.

STEM Technology Initiative

  • The Foundation will focus each year on a district suggested program to assist with the implementation of Science, Technology, and Engineering and Math principles to help better prepare our students for 21st century learning.
  • For 2010-2011 we will work to add additional model classrooms in the schools where teachers can incorporate pictures, sound and animation into their daily lessons to help students ability to recall basic facts and understanding of complex systems through multimedia.

CMC Teacher Warehouse

  • The Foundation, in conjunction with Hands-on Clarksville, provides a free teacher supply store for licensed CMCSS teachers.
