Commission Community Grant Award to Communities in Schools Galveston County, Inc.
Submitted For: Dedrick Johnson
Submitted By: Titilayo Smith, Community Development/ Grant Admin
Department: Mayor's Office  

Information
ACTION REQUEST
Consider and approve award of $1,500.00 to Communities in Schools under the Texas City Commission Community Grant Fund, sponsored by Mayor Dedrick D. Johnson.
BACKGROUND (Brief Summary)
Communities in Schools Galveston County is a program that will help address issues of truancy, by promoting the importance of school attendance with incentives. Many students who participate in this program are deemed “at risk”. Without the intervention and assistance from CIS, these students could fall through the cracks and partake in deviant lifestyles that are not in sync with the progressive goals of Texas City. Helping students become successful will build stronger families. Strong families make strong communities. This little bit, in my opinion, will go a long way!  As a former educator, this is important to me. Students can not learn in school, if they are not…. IN SCHOOL.

Communities in Schools Galveston County receives no other consistent sources of outside funding. They rely heavily on an annual budget, supported by grants to manage routine operations as well as infrequent donations from supporters.
