Communities in Schools Bay Area


CIS Model

Communities In Schools – Bay Area is an in-school dropout prevention model based on six components that are provided on each CIS Campus.
  • Educational Enhancement: Tutoring is made available to students on a one-on-one basis or in group settings. Students are also given incentives to excel academically.
  • Counseling / Supportive Guidance: CIS case managers work regularly with students on any issue of concern. Referrals to agencies are made for extensive counseling to the students and their families.
  • Pre-Employment Training: Staff persons offer pre-employment education to the students. Guest speakers present career opportunities in CIS group settings.
  • Health and Human Services: By way of networking with other social service agencies, CIS – Bay Area helps provide food, shelter, clothing, health education and other basic life essentials for students and families.
  • Parental Involvement: Parents are encouraged to be an intricate part of their child’s development, through parenting classes, home visits and various activities.
  • Enrichment: Activities are offered throughout the year such as field trips and special events which enhance each student’s learning environment. Before and after school groups are provided to aid in self-esteem building. A summer program is also offered that is both fun and educational.
