Communities In Schools of the Midlands (CISM) is proud to be amongst the accredited non-profit organizations in the state of South Carolina that create measurable outcomes. In the 2017- 18 school year we provided services to 2,488 students and case-managed 256 individuals in six schools within Lexington and Richland County School Districts, and the SC Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). CISM’s dropout prevention program success is due to the use of the Integrated Student Support (ISS) program that brings community resources inside public schools, building relationships and partnerships with leaders in our community to continually address the needs of students.
