This report contains the results of a replication of the high school-level Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT).
Like the other Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs), this study explored student‐level outcomes in an effort to answer the evaluation question: What is the impact or value added of Communities In Schools case‐managed services on student‐level outcomes including school engagement, attitude toward school, relationship with a caring adult, commitment to school, pro‐social behavior, academic performance and involvement in community?
The RCT began in Wichita in one high school in the 2008‐2009 school year. This study followed one cohort of students for two years and one cohort of students for a single year. Impact estimates from the Wichita RCT reflect one year of Communities In Schools for both cohorts of students.
