I have personally heard through several different School Board Superintendents the amazing difference that CIS makes with their children. CIS is a great program for all schools!

Can't think of any - they do a great job with limited funding as most nonprofits.

This program is so helpful to individual students! The one-on-one relationships that are built do so much to increase the potential of so many students who do get this type of adult support elsewhere. I have seen grades increase and overall involvement in school and school related activities soar with many students who participate in CIS.

Allow for more staff per site in order to reach more students.

I am a retired teacher and have been a paid homework tutor with CIS for the past two years. The sixth grade students I have helped not only completed their daily homework, but have utilized the time to read Accelerated Reading books, start reports early, practice multiplication tables and prepare for statewide testing through booklets and computer work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the students grades improve each quarter that I worked with them.

Dr. Dinwiddie and Mrs. Loyd work tirelessly, enthusiastically, and lovingly to help students in their program, and of course these students benefit enormously from their care and concern. One example of this is the tutoring program, which is held in my facility. The number of tutored students grows constantly, and with the help of the CIS program and tutors, students can be seen working hard to improve themselves both academically and in other ways.

CIS is an awesome organization that meets the need of every student. This organization plays a major role in tutoring, mentoring, and coaching students at the middle and high schools in Nassau County.

CIS Nassau is one of the reasons the School District of Nassau County continues to be an "A" school district. By meeting the supplementary needs of our students, especially our lowest quartile, CIS improves the overall success of our schools. From basic math and grammer instruction, to teaching job interview skills, CIS does more than fill an academic void; they touch students' lives.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...the passion of the people and the flexibility in service.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...always willing to help. They worked with the staff at the school and tried to meet the needs as best they could.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Full-time teacher in every school to address the lowest quartile; after school program in every school-lowest,gifted & others; after school tech teacher; job coach to get a job and help after employment; college and life coach;

Ways to make it better...

...there were a bigger budget and more personnel.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

...funds to provide the level of service they would like to provide.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I started typing my answer to the 10 million dollar question and the form cut me off. As a result, I was unable to explain my response. I went back and wrote a list. I could spend the money!

Best use of funds toward programs. Their administrative costs are the lowest of any educational nonprofit I know of. But, most importantly, CIS provided much needed services to children who otherwise would go without.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the annual report, which clearly identifies outstanding results.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

step back and allow it to continue as it is.

seeing how the children, and in some cases, the families are positively affected by the programs received.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best! The Executive Director brings not only compassion but Fortune 500 management experience to this nonprofit.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make Nassau County a much better place to live in the future.

Ways to make it better...

more money was raised.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

CIS Nassau is a great investment in the future of Nassau County.

CIS is an amazing program that reaches out to students who struggle and who often drop out without intervention. It teaches the value of a strong work ethic and organizational/study skills as well as academia. It would be a severe detriment to Nassau County's youth if the program was not allowed to continue.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of students who were changed. Several of my students were in the CIS program, and I witnessed their marked improvement in achievement and attitude.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to run it as effectively as Susan did!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

observing a student realize that he (or she) can actually be successful in school. Improving a child's confidence in himself is worth it all.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exemplary in every way. Their passion toward kids and learning was clearly evident.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the complexion of education in Nassau County. So many more students could succeed if they just had a little help and knew someone cared.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to work in CIS full-time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding due to our state/nation's current economic crisis and sometimes the lack of volunteers and/or available teachers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

our district, state, and nation MUST somehow provide the means for this program to continue. The lives of our children and our country are at stake - a price too great NOT to pay.
