RURAL EXPANSION

In partnership with Gov. Bill Lee's administration and the General Assembly, CIS launched a three-year rural pilot in 2019. Our work has helped reduce chronic absenteeism, improve educational outcomes and raise graduation rates in 23 high schools across 15 of the state's most economically distressed communities.

CIS at Bledsoe County High School

"I don’t have much food at home, so every Friday my site coordinator, Mrs. Amy, gives me some. She even gives me extra, so my sister eats too. Mrs. Amy encourages me to come to school. She texts me to see if I’m okay. I know I can talk to her if I’m having a bad day."
Lindsey, CIS student at McNairy Central High School
