By Communities In Schools | May 11, 2021

The 2021 Community Matters Report presents a summary of an extraordinary year of challenges for Communities In Schools® (CIS™) and for public education in America. This year’s report emphasizes the need to ensure successful reengagement of all students and build a more equitable system of learning that will exist well beyond the initial return from the pandemic.
Highlights of this year’s report include:

  • Summaries of the impacts of COVID-19 on schools, students, and their families
  • Perspectives on the systemic inequities in public education made more clear by the pandemic
  • A framework for creating more equitable conditions for learning
  • Collaborative solutions for engaging all students 
  • Research insights and policy recommendations
  • Success stories of how schools, students, families, communities, and CIS staff members continued to work together to find ways to succeed – even during a pandemic
