We're All IN for Student Success

At the heart of this partnership model are experienced practitioners, also known as site coordinators, who work full-time within schools to support students. Site coordinators are employed, trained, and managed by a Communities In Schools affiliate that works in close partnership with school leadership to ensure their effectiveness. Within a school building, site coordinators help to identify and manage community partners, while also coordinating the delivery of school-wide resources and programs. Most importantly, site coordinators are also focused on providing individualized support for a case load of students identified as at risk of dropping out.

Our affiliate partnership model is unique in its ability to support the implementation of integrated student supports (ISS) through a dedicated team of school support staff. In this model, a local Communities In Schools affiliate is identified to work alongside schools, districts, and state education agencies as a long-term partner for school improvement.

For more than 45 years, Communities In Schools has perfected this model of partnership through more than 13 independent evaluations.
