Mission Statement


The mission of Communities In Schools Dallas Region, Inc. is to help students at risk of failure stay in school, achieve academically and graduate, to become productive and contributing members of our communities.

Description


Communities In Schools Dallas Region, Inc. was founded in 1985 to address the growing number of high school dropouts in Dallas and surrounding areas. As experts in collaboration and in providing comprehensive case-managed services, CISDR’s professional staff brings community resources into schools to work in the interest of at-risk children in a coordinated, caring and cost-effective way. Currently, CISDR operates in 61 schools in 10 school districts in Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson and Rockwall counties. CISDR’s programs have a direct impact on more than 47,000 students annually. Nearly 80% of the students served by CISDR are economically disadvantaged and at-risk of academic failure according to the Texas Education Agency. Students are referred to the program by teachers, counselors, administrators, parents, friends or are self-referred. CISDR case managers work with each child to develop a holistic plan to prepare students for successful lives. This means that CISDR not only works with students to address academic concerns, but also with parents, teachers and administrators who are involved with these students each day. By using this holistic wrap-around approach, distractions and disruptions in the student’s life outside of the school environment are addressed, allowing the student to focus on his/her schoolwork.
