All In For Students 2017 National Impact Report

Impact Report 2017

Young people of all backgrounds and abilities thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they have a sense of belonging to a caring community. That’s exactly what Communities In Schools (CIS) provides IN SCHOOLS, every day.  We harness available resources in communities, and match them with each student’s needs to help them overcome the academic and non-academic barriers to achievement. 

The 2017 All In For Students National Impact Report outlines the accomplishments of Communities In Schools during the 2015-2016 school year. It includes data on the percentage of students who were promoted from one grade to another, graduated from high school or otherwise improved their performance. It also includes projections for how CIS is serving more students in the current school year to ensure even more kids receive their diplomas. 

Key findings among our case-managed students include:

  • 99 percent stayed in school
  • 80 percent improved attendance
  • 88 percent improved their academics
  • 91 percent graduated or received a GED
  • 93 percent were promoted to the next grade
