Communities in Schools is a national organization that’s making an impact in the lives of students with individually tailored assistance to help with academic success, access to basic needs such as food and clothing, behavioral intervention, and so much more. Public schools are increasingly expected to provide for the basic needs of students in addition to education and Communities in Schools is doing that with a comprehensive and coordinated strategy. In Washington alone they now operate in 20 school districts statewide.

Last year InterConnection awarded laptops to Communities in Schools of Federal Way. Today those laptops are being utilized in four high schools and one middle school, made available to students to complete school work, apply to colleges & scholarships, and apply for jobs. Set up in the offices of the School Outreach Coordinators’, students are able to work independently on assignments and ask for assistance when needed.
