Communities In Schools

Communities In Schools helps our students and their families address needs that go beyond the classroom. Site coordinators identify students needing support with the goal of keeping students engaged in school.

Types of support that can be provided are:

  • Finding assistance for food, rent, utilities, clothes, and more
  • Obtaining additional academic support for students in or out of school
  • Connecting students and families with teachers and other staff
  • Working with students to improve school attendance, behavior, or academics
  • Providing assistance with finding a counselor or a mental health professional
  • Talking about student concerns at school

For more information, contact the school site coordinator or visit the Communities In Schools Benton-Franklin website.
