The parent/guardian of every child served by CISDR completes a permission slip, informed consent and release of information, which allows CISDR to access their child’s academic record. Following an assessment of the child’s academic, attendance, behavioral and social service needs, a baseline is created and progress is measured every 6 or 9 weeks (depending on the district).
In the 2018-19 school year, more than 50,000 students had access to CISDR help on their campus every day (supplies, food, clothing, etc.) 7,535 K-12 students benefited from individualized CISDR support (tutoring, counseling, home visits, parent intervention, etc.) Of these students:
- 85% improved in academics, behavior and/or attendance
- 98% were promoted to the next grade
- 98% of eligible seniors graduated
- 99% stayed in school
