  • Communities In Schools (CIS):
    The prime objective of CIS is to encourage students to stay in school so they can become successful members of their community. Communities In Schools is dedicated to meeting the needs of our students through supportive guidance, health and human services, parental involvement, enrichment, and academics in a personal one-on-one relationship. CIS supports the students’ positive growth and achievement by addressing individual needs in a caring, personalized, holistic, and accountable manner.

    During the school year, your child will participate in enrichment and academic activities. CIS also provides supportive guidance that will allow the student to improve attendance, academic performance, and behavior.
