KS97562In the fall of 2014 Communities In Schools of Benton-Franklin was added to the list of Communities In Schools affiliates impacting the state of Washington.

The key to Communities In Schools’ success is our site coordinators. Equal parts compassion and expertise, site coordinators work one-to-one with struggling students to get them what they need to stay on track.

Last year Communities In Schools site coordinators touched the lives of students in 15 Washington school districts: over 63,000 students benefited from school-wide services and over 4,000 received one-to-one, case-managed services. Of the students receiving individualized assistance:

  • 99.6% of secondary students stayed in school.
  • 96.5% of secondary students were promoted to the next grade or graduated.
  • 81.0% improved attendance.
  • 82.9% improved academic performance.

Of all organizations working toward student achievement nationwide, only Communities In Schools is proven to increase proficiency in math and reading (key indicators for potential student success), decrease dropout rates, and boost on-time graduation rates.
