CIS Series Continues: HP Enterprise

My friend and former colleague Katisha Hayes continues her High Point Enterprise series on Communities in Schools. Click here for today’s main article and click here for the sidebar.

An excerpt:

Site coordi­nators are as­signed full time to 13 schools in the High Point area, working in conjunction with school so­cial workers and counselors to bring enrichment programs and other activities into the school setting.
Dwight Hash, assistant prin­cipal at Penn-Griffin School for the Arts, said the site co­ordinators are largely respon­sible for the success of CIS.
“They play a major role and have the most impact on the program,” he said.
Coordinators help assign tutors for struggling students under the Jump Start reading program. And they find the perfect meal buddy to give spe­cial attention to youngsters during breakfast and lunch. They also partner high school students with career mentors who help keep them on track until graduation.

E.C. 🙂
