Young people of all backgrounds and abilities thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they have a sense of belonging to a caring community. That’s exactly what Communities In Schools (CIS) provides IN SCHOOLS, every day. We harness available resources in communities, and match them with each student’s needs to help them overcome the academic and non-academic barriers to achievement.
CIS has a presence in 25 states and the District of Columbia. Last school year, we served 1.48 million students, working in 2,300 schools and 364 school districts throughout the country.
The 2017 All In For Students National Impact Report outlines the national accomplishments of Communities In Schools during the 2015-2016 school year. It includes data on 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.
When we’re in schools, the impact is great. In the coming weeks we will tell you more about how Communities In Schools of Greater New Orleans and Baton Rouge makes a difference in the lives of CIS students by going #AllinforKids.
