Communities In Schools of Wake County works with students in schools across Wake County to impact overall school goals. Evidence shows that attendance, behavior, coursework, and parent and family engagement are indicators of student success. When a student needs support in one or more of these areas, CIS Wake deploys Success Coaches in schools to provide evidence based supports, interventions and services.
Success Coaches provide academic case management and social emotional support for 50-100 students, helping them remain on track for year-round academic success. Success Coaches broker or directly provide for their schools, a range of tiered supports that impact students one-on-one, small group, and school-wide. This approach is known as the CIS Model.
The implementation of the Success Coach program ensures students are fully-prepared to pursue meaningful educational and career opportunities upon graduation; developing diverse, 21st century-ready talent and contributing to the economic strength of Wake County.
Success Coaches are embedded within assigned schools and school communities to work with a targeted group of 50 to 100 students using case management strategies to reduce and ultimately eliminate school drop-out rates due to attendance, behavior, and grades.
