CIS Nassau is a high impact program involving support from both education and community leaders in Nassau County who have discovered the CIS formula actually works! Having served for several years on a board of education in another area of the country, I was pleased to find such a professional program that's getting high marks. Of particular note is the high level of enthusiasm shown by students and teachers alike. Let's support what works!

I have been involved with CIS since it began in Nassau County. I have seen its success in the life of the students it serves. I have also seen the benefit to the schools that have CIS workers. They are a vital part of the school's services to ensure the success of a student.

The Great!

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

I have witnessed the success of CIS in both the lives of students, their families and the schools. Many students would not be as successful in school withouth CIS.

As a retired superintendent of schools, I was interested in the program in Nassau County. I attended several functions and visited schools to speak with students, teachers and administrators. This program is one of the best I have seen in my 40 years in public education. I was asked to serve on the Nassau CIS Board and enthusiastically said yes. The CIS Board, the school administration and the community provide excellent support for the children in Nassau whose needs range from a little help just to catch up to those students who not only need CIS help but also help from other agencies. This is and excellent program that I not only support with donations but also time.

The Great!

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

the improvement of students academic skills and their attitude toward school. I would hate to imagine the problems the school would have without this program. I will do my best to see that this program continues for the youth in Nassau Co Public Schools.

Ways to make it better...

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

continue to support, assist, and develop programs that have evidence of improving student achievement and creating an atmosphere of respect for school and the work place.

More feedback...

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

the total commitment to the needs of the students by the CIS staff and volunteers. I have also enjoyed the specific activities and personally working with these young people.

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

were committed to the implementation of the various programs and skilled in their approach to the individual child and the groups of children.

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

expand the services offered to all students who are struggling in the the academic proficiencies required by the federal and state regulations. Intensive services could reach more children and the dropout rate would be reduced significantly.

Ways to make it better...

I had done more homework prior to visits to be better informed of the programs. However, it was probably better the way I did it since my expectations were not great based on some previous experiences in other school districts. The program was excellent.

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

the continual struggle for funds to expand the programs to all schools and provide additional support for students in danger of dropping out of school.

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

the Nassau County Communities in Schools program is well organized and staffed by some of the most caring, professional and qualified staff I have encountered in my years in public education. I wish we could do more and would with more funds.
