ERIC - ED - Reducing the Risk: Schools as Communities of Support.,
The key is the CIS Model. Comprehensive and integrated services are provided in each participating school through a single point of contact—the school-based Site Coordinator. Site Coordinators tailor services to the needs of individual students.
Services may encompass academic help, provision of health care, counseling, transportation, donated goods, mentoring, afterschool programs, and much more. For 40 years, the CIS Model has proven to be a cost-effective model that district leaders recognize as a critical component of successful school turnaround. CISGC is a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to helping at-risk and economically disadvantaged youth succeed in school and in life.
The improvement package will create additional CIS sites across the state. The CIS model will allow for comprehensive and integrated services to be provided to students through a single point of contact — the school-based site coordinator.
School based site coordinators collaborate with community partners to meet the needs of students facing academic, behavioral, and social challenges. Research shows that attention to the needs of individual students and the school is critical to reducing dropout rates and increasing graduation rates.

Findings — Respondents lacked a clear understanding of a learning organisation despite their actions to implement the concept in their own schools; the concept may indeed be too abstract to enable a suitable workable definition; there is, nevertheless, a strong belief that the concept has much to offer; leadership is the key factor in transforming schools; and traditional school structures and cultures, lack of implementation time, and difficulty in obtaining the support of staff and parents are seen as the main barriers to implementation.
