2021-2026 Strategic Plan | How We Will Achieve Our Goals

CIS of Central Texas Program Managers play a pivotal role as the point of contact working inside the school coordinating and providing integrated student supports.

Utilizing a developmental relationships framework, learning supports, family engagement, and a menu of individualized services 

Along with other strategies and interventions, Communities in Schools will expand the following methods to achieve our Strategic Plan goals:

Check & Connect Model

At the core of the Check & Connect model is a trusting relationship between the student and a caring, trained adult who both advocates for and challenges the student to keep education top of mind. By systematically monitoring student performance variables like absences, tardiness, behavioral referrals and grades, CIS direct care staff help students solve problems, build skills, and enhance competence. The Check & Connect model will support student re-engagement after the pandemic as well as academic success.

Family Engagement

Family engagement is essential for student success and impacts student achievement
