School-based site coordinators empower students to stay in school through individualized access to needed resources, and ongoing encouragement and guidance to build confidence to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
Through the annual Stuff The Bus Campaign, CIS of Seattle provided school supplies for over 14,480 low-income students at 38 schools in the fall of 2015. During the holidays, CIS of Seattle also works with partners to bring food and gifts to families at our 10 schools.
CIS of Seattle has site coordinators in 8 Seattle Public schools who provide intensive case management to 10% of the student population and provide enrichment activities to the entire school community. The site coordinators link students to a variety of activities and resources. They may include: tutoring and homework assistance, mentoring, high risk behavior intervention or prevention, college application assistance, basic needs, family support and much more. The site coordinators bring resources into the schools from a comprehensive network of support that includes teachers and school personnel, community members, volunteers, organizations, religious groups, local businesses and corporations.
