So far CIS has been great! My son is thoroughly loving it. I see it already making a difference in his grades. This is the first year for him, he's a 6th grader at Hilliard Middle Senior High School. Dr. D and her team are AWESOME! If you have a struggling child(ren) I highly recommend this program. :)

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.

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.
