The CIS Model of Integrated Student Support = Success!

March 04, 2015

The Communities In Schools (CIS) evidence-based and rigorously tested model has been shown to help at-risk students stay in school and graduate. In a national and independent comprehensive five-year study that culminated in 2011, ICF International reported that the CIS model of integrated student services is unique in having a positive effect on two fronts—reducing dropout rates and increasing graduation rates. Further, the evaluation showed CIS’ intensive case managed services have produced the strongest reduction in dropout rates of any existing fully scaled dropout prevention program that has been evaluated, and that the CIS’ model is effective across states, school settings (urban, suburban, rural), grade levels, and student ethnicities.
