Impact

Communities In Schools is dedicated to making a real tangible impact on the lives of students in our community.

Dedicated to Impacting Lives

CIS’s program outcomes are documented and measured at two levels: School data, and Texas Education Agency evaluation. CIS tracks student grades, attendance, behavior, grade promotion, high school graduation, and post-secondary enrollment rates through school data, therefore no claim is made of achievements in these areas unless there is school-based documentation supporting it. As a CIS supporter and partner, the Texas Education Agency evaluates and certifies the data reported to them.

Testimonials

“I’ve never had a person in my life who would stand by my kids and also stand by me. She gave me hope to keep going. It’s nice to know that we have people like her at schools. I wish we had more of them.”

What Teachers Say

“Communities In Schools is such an invaluable resource. As a school, we recognize that our students have needs that go beyond instruction. Sometimes we don’t have the capacity to reach the needs that the students have, but Communities In Schools can bridge that gap.”

Ryan Catala, Fort Worth ISD Principal
