December 21, 2017 Caring Matters: Supporting Communities in Schools
Giving back to the community is extremely important to everyone at LeapFrog Solutions. That’s why we are honored to support Communities in Schools of Northern Virginia (CIS of NOVA) since its inception – and this year was our largest financial contribution to date. Our fellow frogs have also donated a sleigh full of hats, scarves, gloves and socks to Arlington Community High School and Career Center. We’d also like to thank PCI Communications and Carousel 30 for their contributions to this vital mission of keeping kids in school and providing them a successful path forward.
Communities in Schools “combines the art of one-on-one relationships with the science of proven, evidence-based programs” to support kids in school through high school graduation and beyond. For the 2016-2017 school year, CIS of NOVA results speak for themselves:
- 4,470 students connected to a Tier 1 (school wide) service
- 2,144 students connected to basic needs support
- 2,515 family members engaged through support and events
- More than 9,596 hours of small group and individualized programming
- 99% graduation rate
