Our Site Coordinators are the key to our success. Equal parts compassion and expertise, Site Coordinators work one-on-one with struggling students to get them what they need to stay on track at school.
Last year in Spokane County, we helped 306 students achieve their goals. In addition, we matched 201 at-risk youth with community mentors who related to them weekly, right at school. The 306 students we served intensively were referred for specific concerns, often called the ABCs:
- Poor attendance (typically less than 85%)
- Behavior issues that lead to the principal’s office or suspension
- Course work/academic performance below grade
- Struggles socially and/or emotionally
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.
