Communities In Schools

Supporting our students.
Strengthening our schools.
Improving our future.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region, Inc. (CISDR) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

WHY WE DO IT

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.

HOW WE DO IT

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.

Safer Students, Stronger Schools

Through our "Safer Students, Stronger Schools" initiative, CISDR is increasing awareness, educating school leaders and providing much-needed student support. By donating to CISDR, you are investing in the education, health and safety of hundreds of thousands of students across our community.

Please join us in making our schools the "safe place" our students need and deserve.
