Public Announcement

TCU Montgomery Indoor Pool suspended until Phase III of the ‘Stay Safe MN’ Plan

The Tri-City United School District is saddened to report that the TCU Montgomery Indoor Pool will be closed for the month of June due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At the recommendation of Governor Tim Walz and the MN Department of Health, it has been determined to be unsafe to the community to open the pool at this time. We will continue to monitor the pool opening under Governor Tim Walz’s ‘Stay Safe MN’ Plan to determine the possibility of opening in July.

Connect with TCU Counselors and Social Workers

AVID is for all students but targets those in the academic middle and those who are usually under-served. It is designed to support students and educators as they increase school-wide/district-wide learning and performance.
AVID is not a remedial, niche or college outreach program. It is not a free ride nor is it a study hall. Students must learn and apply the skills they are taught in their AVID elective class as well as do the academically rigorous work required.

AVID's mission
AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. It is designed to ensure all students, especially the least served students who are in the academic middle to:
* Succeed in rigorous curriculum
* Complete a rigorous college preparatory path
* Enter mainstream activities of the school
* Enroll in college
* Become educated leaders in their communities and our society
 
What AVID Is
* AVID is for middle to upper middle academic students. These students have the potential for Honors and AP (Advanced Placement) work but need to develop the skills needed to be successful in rigorous courses.
* AVID combines rigor with support that includes the student's individual determination and the support of teachers, other AVID students and their families and AVID tutors.
 
What AVID Is Not
* AVID is not an at-risk program. It is a program designed to support students who would otherwise not attend higher education to attend and to graduate from college.
* AVID is not for students who don't do any of their homework.
* AVID is not for the consistently D or F student.
* AVID is not for unmotivated students. They must have individual determination.
