Unlocking the Full Potential of Students in Charleston
DEAR FRIENDS,
Fiscal year 2013-2014 was an outstanding one for Communities In Schools of the Charleston
Area! Twenty-five years after its establishment here, our organization continues to do
whatever it takes to keep Charleston area students in school and on track to graduation.
With this report on our activities and accomplishments during the past year, we invite you
to share with us in our successes and take pride in what our community is doing collectively
to ensure that, for each new generation, the cycles of poverty and underachievement are
replaced by pathways to opportunity and success.
This past year, we provided our services in 30 schools in Charleston and Berkeley Counties
and served more than 14,000 students in grades K through 12. In June, we witnessed 95% of
our case-managed seniors walk across the stage at six graduation ceremonies, and rejoiced
when three of those graduates were valedictorians and one a salutatorian. Of those Class
of 2014 graduates, 88% were accepted into college and 10% enlisted in the military. Lives
that could have been limited by leaving school without a diploma were significantly and
positively altered to make way for new options and opportunities.
These successes could not have happened without your assistance We thank you for your
help in giving at-risk students the support they need to stay in school and achieve in life.
BEST REGARDS,
JANE RILEY GAMBRELL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
DANIEL F. KASSIS, CIS BOARD CHAIRMAN

Unlocking the Full Potential of Students in Charleston
“At-risk youth face untold hazards in their environments, and one by
one these burdens pile up until a student just can’t stand the weight any
longer. These students aren’t walking out the front door of their school in
protest. Instead, the floor is giving way under their feet.”
DANIEL CARDINALI, PRESIDENT, COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS
Communities In Schools is a nationwide network of passionate professionals working in
public schools to surround students with a community of support, empowering them
to stay in school and achieve in life. During the 2013-2014 school year, Communities
In Schools of the Charleston Area served more than 14,000 students in 30 schools in
Berkeley and Charleston Counties, helping to break the cycle of poverty, school failure and
underemployment.
This report outlines the accomplishments of Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area
during the 2013–14 school year and includes projections for the coming year. It also presents
data on the percentage of students who were promoted from one grade to another, who
graduated from high school or otherwise improved their performance, and how this success
was achieved.
“Our CIS Student Support Specialist is one of the most critical individuals in our
school. The victory is able to occur in the classroom because our specialist is able
to see that basic needs, medical attention, and student incentives are in place. Now
students are ready to learn. Parents who receive help through CIS are more willing
to be a part of their child’s educational experience.”

ABOUT COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS NATIONALLY
Communities In Schools is the only dropout prevention organization proven to both lower dropout
rates and increase graduation rates. What sets Communities In Schools apart is the organization’s
holistic approach to addressing both the academic and nonacademic needs of students. Working
with school staff, Communities In Schools site coordinators — who are positioned in schools —
identify students in danger of dropping out, assess what resources they need, and then provide
those resources through the appropriate community partnerships. These resources include food,
clothing, transportation, housing, medical and dental care, mental health services, mentoring and
much more.
At Communities In Schools, we work to change the picture of education for
more than 1.3 million kids every year. We do this by
1. Ensuring kids attend school,
2. Doing whatever it takes to eliminate barriers, and
3. Providing options so we never give up on anyone

ABOUT COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS OF THE CHARLESTON AREA
Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area was established in 1989, following a study by Johns Hopkins
University in Maryland that advised the Charleston County School District to implement dropout prevention
programs. Working in partnership, the District and Communities In Schools established the Septima P. Clark
Corporate Academy (“Clark”) the following year, making it the County’s first nontraditional high school, serving
students who previously had not excelled in a traditional school setting.

MEET ONE OF OUR SITE COORDINATORS
LEONDRA STONEY
Referred to by her principal as a “silent storm,” Leondra has spent the past five years assuring
that every student at Lincoln Middle High School is prepared to achieve in life. While
Leondra officially case manages thirty-six students, she knows each of the school’s 153
students by name and her door is always open to students who need assistance.
From securing basic needs for her families to providing college preparation, Leondra is not
afraid to do whatever it takes to see every child at her school succeed. During the 20132014 school year, Leondra put together financial aid packets, SAT/ACT study plans, edited
application and scholarship essays, met with parents about financial aid and persistently
created a plan for each of the school’s fifteen seniors. As a result, fourteen were accepted
into college with financial assistance and one enlisted in the military.
Dr. Yvonne Commodore, principal at Lincoln Middle High School, credits Leondra with the
successes her school has seen: “I cannot imagine our school without the resources that Ms.
Stoney provides. Our families trust her and often seek her help when they are in difficult
situations.”
MEET ONE OF OUR STUDENTS
KADEIDRA WILDER
Kadeidra was only a freshman at St. John’s High School when she started visiting Brenda
Middleton, one of three site coordinators at the school. At 14, Kadeidra was working hard to
overcome the social and emotional obstacles she was facing. Her brother had just passed
away and her home life was making it difficult for her to stay focused at school.
With the help of Ms. Middleton, Kadeidra, now a senior at St. John’s, is not only on track
to graduate this spring, but has also become heavily involved in extracurricular activities.
During Spring Break, Kadeidra, along with several of her classmates, presented to senior staff
of the National Library of Medicine, a division of the National Institutes of Health, as part of
the Teen Health Leadership Program (THLP) at St. John’s High School. The THLP seeks to
increase health literacy through access to quality health information, develop young leaders,
and support students’ community engagement.
As for life after high school, Kadeidra plans on majoring in Computer Technology at Trident
Tech. “Knowing that the majority of my family didn’t attend college, it brings me the
realization that I can do the things that they never had the chance to do. “
