All these services will augment and in most cases create new services to the children. School principals and counselors are identifying those particular services that are most needed in their campuses. They have also agreed in our “Partnership Agreement” to notify CIS / ACE of any possible duplication of services.

Required Services

 The CIS program consists of six required components.  Each of our        programs provide these components within our service area based on the specific needs of the students and campuses as communicated to CIS by school administrators.  The required program components are:

  • Educational enhancement – help students through tutoring or mentoring to improve their academic and vocational skills and achievements.
  • Enrichment – help students enhance their self-esteem, through a variety of programs and activities, while encouraging them to control and channel their behavior in constructive ways.
  • Parental/Family involvement – facilitate and encourage parental involvement in their children’s school experience.
  • Health and Human Services – provide these services to students and families to enable them to concentrate on their school priorities.
  • Pre-employment/Employment – provide students with easy information or access to skills training and job placement.
  • Supportive Guidance – improve students’ attendance at school and broaden the students’ horizons by providing a personal, one-on-one relationship with a caring adult.

Other Services

  • Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) - help parents and students by providing afterschool care supervised with homework completion and academic enrichment activities. 
  • Provide supportive guidance and programs relating to drugs, alcohol, smoking, gangs, violence, ethnic sensitivity, teen parents
  • Provide social, organizational, employment and behavior skills programs to students
  • Provide positive self-image, social skills, and conflict resolution classroom sessions
  • Provide goal setting, tutoring and educational enhancement
  • Coordinates eye, dental and hearing screenings for students at our elementary schools
  • Coordinate parent/children activities at our resource centers
  • Provide summer school programs in various school districts
  • Perinatal services to our pregnant teens
  • Facilitate parenting workshops and coordinate ESL classes for adults.



CIS and ACE deliver or coordinate the delivery of services for the benefit of each child based on an analysis on what the child needs. CIS attempts to reverse the current practice, which requires students to seek help outside, and instead CIS arranges for outside help and/or the CIS Campus Coordinators to serve along-side teachers and counselors as a coordinated team to keep children in school and provide a positive influence for success. Services are provided during the school day or afternoon at the student’s respective school. The school environment is the most neutral and familiar setting outside of the family for prevention/early intervention activities.
