Review for Communities In Schools of Greater Central Texas, Inc., Killeen, TX, USA
Communities in Schools (CIS) is an organization that students, parents, and even teachers depend on. Most fundamentally, CIS ensures that a student's basic needs are met. This may be exemplified by the provision of food, clothes, or glasses. CIS also provides for many enrichment opportunities such as assistance with college/scholarship applications, after school groups, and educational field trips. CIS is also a catalyst for connecting parents with resources and opportunities in the community. This is a program families rely on and I can't imagine a school without it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Every moment. A family that fills its cupboard with needed food, or gets the money needed to fix their car. A student whose self-esteem rises, another who gets the Christmas present they always wanted, gets a new pair of much needed shoes, or simply help with their homework.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Ensure there is a CIS Director at every campus.
