Our Impact

Last year, Communities In Schools® (CIS™) reached
1.61 million students with our supports and essential resources. CIS surrounds students with a community of support so they stay – and succeed – in school.

BUT THERE ARE MORE KIDS WHO STILL NEED SUPPORT

Kids can’t get an education – or graduate and reap the benefits that come from a high school degree – if they’re not in school. Inequitable learning conditions and disparities in chronic absenteeism, drop-out rates, and graduation rates far predate the pandemic.

Leveling the Playing Field

Our model of integrated student supports is not about doing the work for students. It’s about making sure all students have access to the community resources and tools they need to unlock their potential and thrive.

WE DO THIS BY:

Setting Students Up for Success

OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE:

put students at the center and surround them with a caring community of support, anchored by our dedicated staff. Here are some stories about how we do that.
