Join us for the 6th Annual CISDR Golf Tournament, to be held on Monday, September 25, 2017 as Las Colinas Country Club. Registration starts at 10:30, with a shotgun start at noon, followed by an awards banquet at 5:00.
Every day, thousands of Dallas area students attend school with the goal to learn, develop and thrive, enjoying childhood along the way. Unfortunately, 74% of those students are currently living in poverty, heading to school earlier than others to catch free breakfast. A portion of those students arrive without complete homework, depressed, ready for another fight, or go out the back door before the tardy bell rings. These children are a sample of who the State of Texas formally label as “at-risk”, as they may not complete the school year, often based on situations of which they have no control.
Since 1985, this organization, in partnership with local school districts, has been embedded on select high need elementary, middle and high school campuses, to provide the services that the schools cannot. CISDR’s full-time professional staff is responsible for day-to-day program implementation at no cost to students with supports ranging from individualized tutoring, behavioral counseling, truancy diversion, social services, parenting education & home visits, crisis management and college/career preparation.
At the close of the 2015-16 school year, 7,697 children received no less than 5 months of CISDR support on their campuses with (among other indicators) 91% improving in behavior, 89% improving by one letter grade, 96% getting promoted to the next grade and 95% of eligible seniors graduating.
The 6th Annual Campaign for Kids Golf Tournament is offered to provide a challenging opportunity for those who believe in the potential of these children, to make a difference in the lives of students by ensuring a CISDR presence on their campus every day. Funds raised will support the provision of direct services which result in improved grades, reduced truancy and improved behavior – all of which create smart, confident kids, safer schools and thriving future graduates!
