Rural Expansion

In partnership with Gov. Bill Lee's administration and the General Assembly, Communities In Schools (CIS) of Tennessee is in year two of a three-year rural pilot.  Our program will work to to help reduce chronic absenteeism, improve educational outcomes, and raise graduation rates in 23 high schools across 15 of the state's most economically distressed communities.
