This academic year Communities In Schools of Seattle (CISS) is serving over 3,000 students with 200 of those students receiving intensive one-on-one support at Aki Kurose Middle School, Denny International Middle School, Madison Middle School, and South Shore PK8. Site Coordinators are in schools working closely with students and their families to help aid with food insecurities, emergency utility assistance, and transportation issues to and from school, among other barriers to academic success.
