As we close out the 2017 year, we to thank everyone involved in the successes achieved by the students of Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region, Inc. (CISDR). Once again, CISDR has brought about meaningful improvements for the children we work with on a daily basis throughout the school year.
We couldn’t do this without the support of our donors, staff, community leaders, volunteers and our collaborative and service partners.
During the 2016-2017 school year we supported 7,274 high need school children, 76% of which are living below the poverty line. These children achieved the following results:
- 85% improved in academics, behavior and/or attendance
- 89% were promoted to the next grade
- 96% of the eligible seniors graduated and
- 97% stayed in school.
CISDR strives to be a leader in education reform and continues to innovate our campus based interventions to serve the children, families and schools that need it most.
