We do whatever it takes to help more kids stay in school and graduate, and our 2017-2018 year-end outcomes show the impact of this work.
The key to Communities In Schools’ success is our site coordinators. Equal parts compassion and expertise, site coordinators work one-to-one with struggling students to get them what they need to stay on track.
Last year Communities In Schools site coordinators touched the lives of students in 26 Washington school districts: 58,197 students received school-wide services and 4,173 received one-to-one, case-managed services. An additional 18,209 students received other support services and we engaged with 14,768 parents. Of the students receiving individualized case managed assistance:
- 98.5% stayed in school
- 87% improved academic performance
- 76% improved attendance
- 87% improved behavior
Of all organizations working toward student achievement nationwide, only Communities In Schools is proven to increase proficiency in math and reading (key indicators for potential student success), decrease dropout rates, and boost on-time graduation rates.
