In response to school reopening plans:
For 32 years Communities In Schools of the Midlands (CISM) has supported students and families through hardships and uncertainty. During the unprecedented time we are experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic, CISM is even more committed to ensuring that the needs of our most vulnerable population is met.
We understand that this is a difficult time for our communities and stand in support of our school district leaders as they work tirelessly to create a plan to safely integrate our students back into the classrooms. Our staff will continue to participate in community discussions and serve on district committees to advocate and ensure that the voices of our students and families are heard.

In the U.S., approximately 1 in 5 children under the age of 18 live in poverty, handling more than they should have to. Communities In Schools works directly inside schools, building relationships that empower students to succeed inside and outside the classroom.
