Communities In Schools helps children achieve academic success by meeting needs that might otherwise get overlooked. We work closely with school districts and social service agencies to solve problems that have a serious impact on a child’s chances for success. The help we provide can be as simple as providing eyeglasses or shoes to a child in need or as intensive as one-on-one tutoring—our approach is individualized to the child. We also have a great team. We’re a part of the nationwide CIS movement—our network structure encourages collaboration, and the sharing of cutting-edge ideas and best practices from around the country.
