Communities In Schools of Brazoria County and Southeast Harris County (CIS) are a joint venture 501(c)3 non-profit organization administered by the Texas Education Agency.
One of our key initiatives is providing high-quality programs during the school day and afterschool throughout Brazoria and Southeast Harris Counties. We currently have 84 federally and state funded program sites in 7 school districts serving over 11,000 students.
These programs strive to improve academics, behavior, attendance, promotion, and graduation rates. CIS does this by providing homework help, tutoring, enrichment, health and wellness, character education, college and career readiness, family engagement, social services, and service learning.
The best thing about CIS is that all services are at no charge to the participants. Last year, 99.7% of our students stayed in school, 97.5% were promoted to the next grade, 92.6% improved in academics, attendance and behavior and 98.6% of our seniors graduated.
