Mission Statement

"Empowering Students to Stay in School and Achieve in Life" Communities In Schools of Orting understands that it 'takes a village' and that our schools can't do it alone. Our school-based coordinators work directly with at risk students to connect them with a support system that includes mentors, tutors, social services, resources for health and dental care, and job training. We serve in the Orting School District to help increase proficiency in math and literacy with the goal of increasing numbers of students who graduate.


Student Success, One Child at a Time Promoting student success, easing the burden on schools, freeing teachers to teach.

Ensuring student success is everyone's job: schools, parents, communities.

Communities In Schools is the nation's largest dropout organization. In over 200 communities across 27 states, we work closely with schools, social services, businesses and volunteers to get young people the things they need to learn and grow: after-school help and family services to stabilize the home. Without these basic supports, kids in need or at-risk are far less likely to succeed and grow into productive adults.

Getting kids what they need - when they need it.

Orting is one of Washington State’s fastest growing communities with new families and children moving to the area daily. Nearly 2,000 children currently attend Orting schools and it is projected that another 600-800 will arrive in the next few years.

We understand that Orting is a rural community and has many, many parents who must commute to work daily, leaving kids home alone from the schools out bell - to the dinner bell- which is often when kids can get into trouble. CISO plans programs around those hours then, so that kids have safe, fun and engaging things to do before their parents arrive home from work!

Proven, Evidence-based Strategy Communities In Schools: the only dropout prevention program in the nation proven to increase graduation rates.

Recent third-party findings confirm: Of the many organizations working to improve student outcomes, Communities In Schools, through coordination of services, is proven to be more effective, and results in higher graduation rates, and higher percentages of students reaching proficiency in math and reading.*
