Communities in Schools (CIS)

We at West Oso ISD are in partnership with Communities in Schools of the Coastal Bend to help bring this amazing and important program to the district at all four campuses.

CIS Mission Statement

The mission of CIS of Texas is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Five Basic Beliefs

The Five CIS Basics are core tenets to success that every individual needs for success. At West Oso Elementary School, we incorporate these values through our program plans, services, and interviews and through direct observation of the CIS environment on our campus.

At CIS we believe that every child needs and deserves the following:

  • A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
  • A safe place to learn and grow
  • A healthy start and a healthy future
  • A marketable skill to use upon graduation
  • A chance to give back to peers and communities
