CIS of Walton Seeks National Accreditation

Communities In Schools of Walton County has been selected to pursue national accreditation from the CIS National Office.  Walton is among eight local affiliates in Georgia selected to participate in this third round of the process, and when complete, will join fewer than 50 local CIS organizations who have achieved the status.  By 2014, all local CIS organizations will be required to have achieved the accreditation standards.

The accreditation process ensures that local affiliates like CIS of Walton County are employing best practices around the 6 CIS Core Functions:

  • General Organization and Business Management
  • Resource Development/Fund Raising
  • Marketing & Public Relations
  • Community Partnerships
  • Managing, Expanding & Developing CIS Sites
  • Providing and/or Brokering Quality Youth Programming and Services

The Communities In Schools National Office has provided a grant of $20,000 to CIS of Walton to pursue the accreditation goals.
