Communities In Schools Southeast Harris and Brazoria County Logo

Communities In Schools is dedicated to meeting the needs of our students through supportive guidance and counseling, health and human services, parental and family engagement, college and career awareness, enrichment activities, and academic enhancement and support in a personal one-on-one relationship. CIS supports the students’ positive growth and achievement by addressing individual needs in a caring, personalized, holistic, and accountable manner.

   During the school year, your child will participate in enrichment and academic activities. This may include mentoring, peer mediation, support groups, academic support, community service projects, and recreational activities. CIS also provides one-on-one supportive guidance that will help the student to improve attendance, academic performance, and behavior.

   All services are provided at NO COST to the students and their families who are enrolled in the CIS program. Please feel free to call or contact me if you have any questions. Thank you and I look forward to working with you and your child.

Our Mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
