Review for Communities in Schools of Central Ohio, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Communities in Schools of Central Ohio has a proven record of helping hundreds of children stay in school and graduate each year. The CIS staff works closely with teachers, community groups and parents to ensure each child is ready to succeed. Poverty creates so many issues that have to be resolved before a child can learn. CIS helps fill the gaps, one child at a time.

I am proud to serve on the CIS board and support the CIS team in any way possible. They truly make a difference in the lives of our children.

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

I had the opportunity to be a principle for a day at a local elementary school. The days provide a glimpse of the issues the school was facing. The principle indicated that the CIS school based resource was critical to the school's overall success. It was great to see the CIS in action.

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

Have more funds to increase the number of school based resources in the Columbus City Schools.
