The CIS Process

The CIS process is simple:

• We place dedicated staff members called Site Coordinators in local schools where they build strong relationships with students, parents, educators and community members.
• CIS of Atlanta's Site Coordinators identify barriers that prevent students from succeeding in school.
• CIS of Atlanta's Site Coordinators address barriers to student success by mobilizing community resources to meet students' needs, while empowering students to realize their potential.

We know that when the needs of children are met, they can be free to learn and teachers can be free to teach.
