communities in school                                                                    



    Communities In Schools (CIS) was established in 1999 and has become the largest stay-in-school program in the area. CIS is the nation's leading dropout prevention organization and has proven to decrease dropout rates and increase graduation rates.  
    Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life goals. CIS implements school-based, integrated student services, identifying and bringing together neighboring schools and the resource programs that students need to be successful. Individualized case management service programs for a targeted group of students for the entire campus. CIS has helped ease the burden on schools by strengthening relationships between home and schools, and increase opportunities for positive life choices and academic achievement. The CIS model has succeeded in  transforming the lives of young people who without these interventions, would likely become dropout statistics with little hope and a bleak future.
