For the second summer in a row, Tampa hosted the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Summer Institute. The Institute attracted more than 2,000 educators from across the nation, including 460 teachers, counselors, and administrators from Hillsborough County Public Schools. This year’s theme was “Student Success Starts Here!”
