What happens to a student when they drop out of school? Imagine the worst situation, and you will have hit the nail on the head. Dropouts often face time on the streets, on drugs or time in prison. Thankfully, there is an organization devoted to stopping students from ever dropping out in the first place.
Communities in Schools is one of the most successful organizations at keeping students in school, meeting all their basic needs and holding schools accountable. They partner with numerous businesses, faith groups, health care agencies and nonprofits. Together, they identify those most at risk and forge a bond that ensures those students do not fall through the cracks.
Communities in Schools recognizes the needs of all students and, instead of ignoring the growing problem with truancy, they step up to the challenge and fight this issue on all fronts.
