Circumstances and barriers for students vary widely across communities. Our local approach allows us to identify the unique needs in our community and leverage resources to make a difference in the lives of our young people.
Across our community, the identified priority local needs and risk factors vary for each school, family, and individual student. The CISP site coordinator is responsible for executing the CIS School support Plan and meeting the needs of the student population, aligning with the priorities of school leadership. Each site coordinator works inside the school with principals, teachers and other student support personnel to forge community partnerships that bring resources into the school to help remove barriers to learning.To address these needs, our school-based site coordinators have implemented the following supports:
- Work closely with the school support teams and school ledership to identify challenged students in needs of support;
- Coordinate partners and service providers to address the potential sources of drop-out;
- Coordinate supports to impact school-wide climate and culture
- Case manage 5-10% of the student population depending on the number of students at the school
