|Evaluation of the Communities In Schools Model|
The CIS Model of dropout prevention has been analyzed by an independent research evaluator and has three proven results. CIS has a significant impact on at-risk student achievement, it is cost effective and gets parents involved in at-risk students' lives.
"CIS is seen as a bridge between the schools, families, students and the community it serves. It is described as a support not only for students but also for families. In particular, CIS is seen as the program that removes barriers and obstacles to success in school for students and helps keep kids in school."
