ECHS site coordinator attends training 
in Washington, D.C. ﷯ CIS of Coweta County’s East Coweta High School Site Coordinator, Denise Buchanan, recently attended CIS site coordinator training in Washington, D.C. Here Denise, at right, visits with CIS of Coweta County Executive Director Gina Weathersby during a recent meeting at ECHS. According to CIS, "A site coordinator is a paid staff member positioned inside a Communities In Schools partner school. He or she fills a pivotal role as the single point of contact working within a school to provide integrated student supports. Site coordinators connect students and families with community resources that address both academic and nonacademic needs. They act as positive role models, mentors and friends to students supported by Communities In Schools and do everything within their power to help students succeed." Denise is working toward her site coordinator certification, and the training program covers such topics as building community partnerships, assessing needs of students and families, and data collection and reporting. We congratulate Denise on expanding her skills as a CIS site coordinator!
