All schools are closed. If you or someone you know is looking for support for basic needs like food, utilities, or technology assistance, academic resources to support at-home-learning, or resources to support students on a social-emotional level, we have provided links to community and online resources on our website. The links are in three categories: Basic Needs (including internet service), Academic Resources, and Social-Emotional Resources. Please visit our website for more information.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success. Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students’ basic needs are met each day. Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals. Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students. Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution. Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution and other strategies to keep them focused on school. Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.
