Communities in Schools (CIS) with Ms. Diana Hernandez
Communities In Schools of San Antonio surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
By bringing resources, community agencies, parents and volunteers into schools, we create a community of caring adults who work hand-in-hand with educators. Through a holistic, one-on-one case management approach, CIS-SA is able to reach out to students most at risk for dropping out of school. If you would like your student to participate, please discuss any social/emotional, academic and/or health concerns your child is experiencing with your child’s teacher or counselor.
CIS-SA also helps families who are in need of social services. At LBJ Elementary we can help families with the following:
- school supplies
- hygiene items
- weekend food assistance for children
- vision vouchers for eye glasses
If your family is in need of any of these services, you can call me at (210) 444-8191 or email me at dhernandez@CISSA.org Please note that resources are limited and there may be qualification requirements for some of these social services. CIS-SA is always looking for parent volunteers to help out with school events. If you would like more information on how to volunteer, please visit our website at http://www.cissa.org/.
