No other community-based organization in Cobb County has the mission of increasing the graduation rates in our schools. Communities In Schools of Georgia in Marietta/Cobb County (CISMCC) works with children and families from birth through the completion of the 12th grade. CISMCC works predominately in Title 1 schools where the majority of the school population is considered low income and qualify to receive free or reduced lunch. Children and families with needs are served by guiding the individuals to the community resources that are able to assist them. The majority of the students served by CISMCC are minority students, struggling to complete high school. CISMCC serves students from every area of the county through the Performance Learning Centers (PLCs) which are for students who are not succeeding in a traditional school setting. The program includes case management, tutoring, mentoring, early learning and Reality U (financial literacy).
