The CIS-After-school Centers on Education (ACE) programs hosted five events putting the spot light on afterschool programs. These events were held at San Jacinto North and Central campuses, Alvin Community College, Columbia-Brazoria ISD's West Brazos Junior High and La Porte's Bayshore Elementary. Over 2,000 students and families from the CIS-ACE programs located in those areas participated in the events that put the focus on the importance of CIS programs.

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 80 federally and state funded program sites in 9 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, 99.9% of our students stayed in school, 97.2% were promoted to the next grade, 92.3% improved in academics, attendance and behavior and 99.9% of our seniors graduated.
