The AVID/TOPS program is a collaborative effort among a variety of dedicated members of the community. In addition to the TOPS Staff, the AVID Coordinators, and the AVID Elective Teachers, each Madison high school has an AVID/TOPS site team. The site team is made up of teachers, administrators, counselors, that school's TOPS Student Coordinator, and other school faculty. This group works together to thoroughly develop and support the program at their site, ensure students have access to a rigorous curriculum, and analyze methods to improve student achievement.
In addition to the partnership between the Madison Metropolitan School District and the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County, an AVID/TOPS advisory Steering board has been created made up of individuals from a variety of community organizations all determined to help Madison teens reach the goal of a college degree. The Steering Board meets quarterly to discuss ways of collaborating ideas and resources from the community to enhance the program and better meet the needs of students involved.
