Of the students we worked with last year: 78% are living in poverty, 46% have limited English proficiency, 39% are reading below grade level, 30% failed statewide benchmark tests and 18% failed core level courses in the previous year.
In partnership with local school districts, we provide daily school based interventions to students in grades K–12 to address academic failure, truancy, behavioral issues, social service needs and more.
CISDR is applying for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Cycle 9, Year 1 grant (RFA701-16-102). This project provides opportunities for academic enrichment, including tutorials for students at Title I or Title I eligible schools, or school with low socio-economic populations. Via CISDR the application will include campuses in Irving ISD, CFB ISD, Duncanville ISD, Rockwall ISD and potentially Plano ISD to establish or expand activities outside of regular school hours. Please contact CISDR with any comments, questions or concerns at CISdev@cisdallas.org with 21st Century in the subject line.
