For nearly 25 years, Communities In Schools of Cleveland County has been helping students achieve in school, graduate, and go on to bright and promising futures. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, which empowers them to stay in school and achieve in life.
I spent my entire professional career as an educator in Cleveland County Schools. We all know that a young person who leaves school prior to graduation faces the prospect of a lifetime of poverty. Success in education is the key to a prosperous economic life and the well being of a community.
Working toward that goal is exactly what Communities In Schools does. Nationally, CIS is the largest and most effective organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed in life. I am proud of the partnership that CIS has with Cleveland County Schools.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I encourage you to read more about CIS and support this effort to help all children become successful and productive members of our community.
