AUSTIN, Texas — At Dessau Middle School, the kids in the AVID program mentor students with special needs and help improve their confidence and social skills.
School leaders say that's one of the most important components of the national program at Dessau, located in the Pflugerville school district. The school was recently named the first middle school in Central Texas to receive the AVID National Demonstration School designation.
