The philosophy of CIS is based on the idea of keeping students in school by directly addressing all of the problems and concerns that cause the child not to do well in school or consider dropping out. CIS’s comprehensive program provides students with the opportunity to overcome obstacles thus making it easier for them to stay in school, successfully learn, and prepare for life.
CIS is an “in-school” program that operates during school hours with a multi-disciplinary approach to increase each student participant’s opportunity to be successful in school by
The program encompasses and encourages partnerships with federal, state and local social service agencies, as well as private and community based organizations, local colleges, the private business sector, the community, churches, and public schools. CIS programs promote and facilitate the coordinated delivery of existing health, social, education, community, and other support services on elementary, middle school, and secondary campuses for the benefit of young people and their families.
