Our recent impact report found that 91% of the seniors who received targeted services from CIS graduated during the 2013-2014 school year.
Each spring, graduation marks a milestone in students’ lives: a recognition of discipline, endurance, achievement and of overcoming obstacles. For some students, the challenges are more than just academic.
For that reason, Communities In Schools (CIS) surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Whether a student needs a ride to school, basic health services or a much-needed meal, CIS connects them to administrators, staff and volunteers positioned to provide resources and services in order to help students stay in school and ultimately, walk across the stage at their graduation.
This impact report outlines the accomplishments of Communities In Schools during the 2013-2014 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.
