AVID Elementary School
Palomino Intermediate implemented the AVID Elementary Program during the 2009-2010 school year. AVID is part of a district wide effort to create college-ready students. AVID is a foundational program for elementary sites feeding into the middle and high school programs. It is an embedded sequential academic skills program intended for non-elective, multi-subject, self-contained classrooms across entire grade levels.
Make Your Day School
Believing that no one has the right to interfere with the learning, safety, or well-being of others, Palomino Intermediate uses the school wide citizenship program Make Your Day. The philosophical foundation of Make Your Day at Palomino Intermediate is that each student is responsible for his or her actions and is responsible for coming to school ready to learn. Teachers coming to Palomino Intermediate will need to be trained in the use of Make Your Day if they are not currently using Make Your Day in their school.
