Communities In Schools of Mid-America

1919 Delaware, Lawrence KS 66046, Douglas County


About Us

Communities In Schools surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Through school-based coordination, Communities In Schools connects students and their families to critical community resources, tailored to local needs. In many Kansas schools we address two kinds of need: School-wide programs target needs ranging from financial literacy to service learning and out-of-school enrichment for older students, to school supplies drives and coat distributions for younger kids. Individualized support is offered on a case-by-case basis. Through mentoring, tutoring, and family support we get to know the kids we help, and track the change that results. Students receiving individualized support during the 2011-2012 school year achieved tremendous results: 99% of potential dropouts stayed in school 98% were promoted to the next grade 79% improved their behavior 81% improved in academics 80% improved attendance
