Did you hear? Communities in Schools (CIS) of Atlanta scored a $1.3 million grant from the FY2018 Georgia Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center! This grant will allow CIS of Atlanta to provide additional support for at-risk 10th-12th grade students at Banneker and Creekside high schools. Alongside Georgia’s High Demand Career Initiative, school principals, and school system staff, CIS’ leadership identified Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) as the biggest area of need – so they created the Real World Academy. This after-school program will have a hands-on approach to STEM concepts and careers and will spark students’ interest in the field, support classroom work, offer access to caring mentors from the community and increase parent engagement.
