CISNT will serve approximately 4,000 at-risk youth throughout the 2012-2013 Academic Year. CISNT operates three distinct dropout prevention programs: case management dropout prevention, dropout intervention programs and 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool programs. Case management dropout prevention programs assess at-risk students based on need to develop and implement a case management plan to address the identified needs. Case management includes supportive guidance and counseling, health and human services, academic enhancement, enrichment, parental involvement and career and college awareness.
In 2012-13, we will serve 1,840 in case management dropout prevention programs. With intervention programs, CISNT specifically targets vulnerable populations such as teen parents, gang members, homeless students, students abusing drugs or alcohol or children of incarcerated parents for comprehensive and holistic services designed to help students overcome these barriers and stay in school. In 2012-13 we will serve 140 students in dropout intervention programs. 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool programs improves academics, improve attendance, behavior, promotion (to the next grade level) rates and improves graduation rates. Simply put, this program provides 15 hours of academic enrichment weekly that adds up to additional days, weeks and even months of academics for the student each year. In 2012-13, we will serve 2,050students in 21st Century programs. Last year CISNT served a total of 3,800 students agency wide.
