Communities In Schools of Tennessee


The mission of Communities In Schools of Tennessee (CISTN) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. We are part of the national Communities In Schools network, known as the leading and most effective dropout prevention organization in America. We work to remove the non-academic barriers that prevent student success in the classroom; and in partnership with local school districts, we provide daily school-based interventions to students in grades K–12 to address academic failure, truancy, behavioral issues, social service needs and more.
