Communities in Schools (CIS)
How I can Help
I work with school leadership and staff to connect Weis students and families with community resources that help address both academic and nonacademic needs, allowing students to show up healthy, safe and prepared to learn.
Who we are
Communities In Schools – Galveston County Area is part of Communities In Schools, Inc. (CIS), the nation’s leading community-based organization helping young people stay in school and prepare for life.
Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Communities In Schools believes that creating relationships is key to unlocking a student's potential. We will succeed by including in our strategies, ingraining in our culture, and reflecting on our behaviors, principles, and practices of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a result, we break down immediate and systemic barriers to create and sustain equitable outcomes.
