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
