2020 Community Matters Report
The 2020 Community Matters report highlights the need for more urgent focus on the challenges in rural schools. It offers our evidence-based model – integrated student supports as an effective approach that is adaptive to meet local challenges.
The report includes real-world examples from rural communities where educators, students, and civic leaders faced those deep and complex challenges and as a direct result of partnering with CISTM, created new connections to success.
With a focus on rural schools, this report represents our results and our commitment in 2,500 schools of all types–rural, urban, and suburban–across the country.
