Communities In Schools has been operating nationally for over 3 decades. In Texas, it is the most successful in-school "stay in school" program for over 2 decades, currently serving students in 27 communities. The long term goal of CIS is to keep students in school until they graduate, which will increase their opportunities for employment and their ability and desire to obtain a college education or vocational training. Ultimately, CIS works with students so that they can become successful contributing self-sufficient adults.
Our CIS programs are available to all students and families who need, are referred, or request our services. However, our targeted population are those students who are "at risk" of not doing well in school or society, including dropping out of school, because their academic, social, physical, economic, spiritual and emotional needs are not being adequately met. We provide our services at the school site, during and after school hours, at campuses in Alvin ISD, Angleton ISD, Columbia-Brazoria ISD, Pasadena ISD, Pearland ISD and Sweeny ISD.
