    Teacher's Letter of Recommendation

    • Please select one teacher to serve as a potential reference if we need a letter of recommendation.  It is recommended you select a core subject teacher (English, History, Math, Science, or World Language).  We will only reach out if we need to do so.

    The Interview 

    • The interviews will be held in person.
    • They will be held by a member of the AVID Team at Troy.  Normally the interview will be around 10 minutes.
    • We will use the interview to get to know your students, and discuss their classes for next year.
    • This is not intended to be stressful, it is a tool to help us get to know our students, and try to find the best placement of classes to start their year.
