The mission of communities in schools of Texas is to help young people stay in school, successfully learn and prepare for life by coordinating the connection of needed community resources in the school setting.
CIS connects school with the resources students need most. Young people receive sevices on their elementary, middle and secondary school campuses. This means growing numbers of at-risk children benefit from: *Supportive guidance and counseling. *Health and human services coordination. *Parental and family involvement. *Pre-empoyment/employment training and services. *Enrichment activities and experiences. *Educational enhancment. CIS of Texas, wich serves more than 238,000 students yearly, is adinistered by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services. Also, CIS of Texas is an integral part of communities in schools, inc., the nation's largest stay-in-school network. In Texas, CIS has 25 local programs serving over 400 campuses. Each local CIS program links educators, employers, government agencies, law enforcment and community organizations in partnership for at-risk youth. This multi-sdisciplinary approach improves attendance, academic performance and behavior. Most notaby, it lowers the school dropout rate.
