Communities In Schools (CIS) is a voluntary program available on your child's campus. CIS believes in connecting community resources to the school setting and partnering in the support and ultimate success of the students we serve. It's a great way to ensure your child has all the support he or she needs at school and prepare for life. CIS strives to help your child improve in academics, behavior, and attendance. CIS is also available to assist parents with social service referrals.

We believe that every child needs and deserves the Five Basics.
