Communities in Schools

Communities In Schools (CIS) is a dropout prevention program that surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. At Cook Elementary, CIS offers individual counseling, crisis support, help with basic needs, and small groups. CIS also works with teachers, administration, and the support team on whole-school interventions and events.
