Communities In Schools of Washington State
Our site coordinators are the key to our success. Equal parts compassion and expertise, site coordinators work one-to-one with struggling students to get them what they need to stay on track at school.
Last year we helped nearly 46,000 Washington students achieve their goals. Of the students we served who were referred for specific concerns:
- 98% of secondary students stayed in school
- 92% of seniors graduated
- 79% improved academic performance
- 73% improved attendance
Of all organizations working toward student achievement, only Communities In Schools is proven to decrease dropout rates, boost on-time graduation rates, and increase proficiencies in math and reading.
