CIS provides case management services and connects critical community resources to students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools who are most at risk for school failure. The scope of our programming has expanded over the years to include core school-based dropout prevention for grades preK-12 as well as specialized intervention programs that target and address specific, chronically growing community issues such as college access and career readiness for low income, first generation youth, support for teen mothers balancing the challenges of childcare and high school graduation, working with youthful offenders to continue their education, and most recently, serving unaccompanied immigrant minor students.
