1,768 individuals received CIS Services during the Fiscal Year 2014-15 school year.
Schools Served: Roosevelt Leadership Academy for Young Men, John F. Kennedy Middle School, Gold Coast Academy, Riviera Beach Preparatory and Achievement Academy, and Pahokee High School.

Level I = 1,475 students served (Tier 1 Schoolwide)

Level One Services are widely accessible to any student requiring CISPBC services and are typically short term in duration.

Level II = 193 students served (Tier 2 and Tier 3)

Level Two Services are targeted for specific students who are enrolled in a CIS classroom initiative. These students have been identified to have risk factors such as poor academic performance and low attendance, and display behaviors that lead to dropping out of school.

The Economic Impact of Communities In Schools
An economic impact quantifying the costs and benefits of Communities In Schools model.

Communities In Schools contracted with EMSI to specify its economic and social returns to society through a rigorous third-party investment analysis. The purpose of this important next step is to quantify the return on investment of Communities In Schools' 113 high school-serving affiliates in its network to taxpayers, businesses, and students. The analysis also shows the economic benefits when local affiliates go from implementing parts of the Communities In Schools model in some of their high schools to full implementation in all of their high schools.
