what is CIS?

Communities in Schools (CIS) is the nation’s leading community-based organization that helps students succeed in school and prepare for life. CIS partners with schools to identify challenges students face in the classroom or at home. It then works with volunteers and community resources to provide those students the support they need to overcome those challenges. CIS has a proven data model that works. 

The HANNA Foundation and STSD in concert with CIS will do whatever it takes to help students succeed.
