The goal of all Texas CIS programs to improve academics, improve attendance, improve behavior, improve promotion (to the next grade level) rates and improve graduation rates. Simply put, this program provides hours that add up to additional days of academic enrichment for the student each year and places the student in a safe and healthy environment protected from many risk factors that derail students between the end of the school day and the time their parents return home.
Each day, students receive a snack while they settle in to complete their homework. In addition to homework completion, students rotate through academic learning activities and a wide variety enrichment opportunities.
