HELPING KIDS STAY IN SCHOOL AND PREPARE FOR LIFE


CIS helps at-risk students improve in academics, attendance and/or behavior encouraging more students to stay in school, graduate and prepare for post-secondary life. CIS provides services and resources through community partnership to ensure a comprehensive case-management approach to meet the needs of students.

CIS links school teachers, administrators, government agencies, and community organizations in partnership for students and at-risk youth.

 

Communities In Schools has been operating nationally for over three decades. In Texas, it has been the most successful "stay in school" program for over two decades and currently serves students in 27 communities.

Some of the Benefits of Communities In Schools include:

• Increase positive self image for students
• Increase productive time for the students and teachers in the classroom.
• Increase/improve levels of academic performance
• Increase/improve levels of attendance (reduce truancy and tardiness)
• Improve student physical, emotional, family, and social health
