Program Description

Communities In Schools is a national dropout prevention program, the only one in the nation proven to both decrease dropout and increase graduation rates. In 1992, the program was brought to Tarrant County by a United Way-led task force. Since then, CIS social workers have been providing case management services inside local schools, to assess each student¬Ěs unique needs and ensure they are connected with community resources they need to address a wide range of obstacles.
