Communities In Schools (CIS) is the nation’s largest and most effective dropout prevention organization. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Founded in 1977 by Bill Milliken, CIS uses a unique model to unify the existing resources of communities around children, families, and schools. The CIS model utilizes a school-based approach called Integrated Student Supports (ISS), which promotes students’ academic success by developing or coordinating supports that target academic and non-academic barriers to achievement. During the 2018-2019 school year, the CIS network operated in 25 states and the District of Columbia, and served 1.62 million students through a federation of 128 organizations including state offices and licensed partners.
