    What is Communities in Schools?

    Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region (CISDR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The goal of CIS is to implement trained staff to provide daily help and intervention to students in need. The focus is first to address any lack of basic needs, or social/emotional needs the student may be facing. Then, through counseling, guidance, and resources, the CIS Site Coordinator is able to assist and re-direct these students towards improved attendance and academic outcomes in a caring and cost-effective way. CIS is here to advocate for your student and help them succeed through free services that help the student reach their full potential.
