Nearly one in four students fails to graduate on time in Washington. Communities In Schools offers a solution to the dropout problem. In partnership with public schools facing the greatest dropout challenges, Communities In Schools brings resources and volunteers into the school to help struggling students get back on track.
In the Peninsula School District last year, site coordinators helped 5,115 students overcome barriers to success, stay on track to graduate, and aim for a brighter future. It’s easy to get involved and help a child reach their goals of sucess.
