West Virginia First Lady Kathy Justice visited Frametown Elementary School on Friday as part of her “All in for Kids” Communities In Schools (CIS) Spring Road Trip. Frametown Principal Barbie Rader welcomed the First Lady who addressed the staff and students concerning the CIS program which forges community partnerships and brings resources into schools to help remove barriers to students learning, The ultimate goal is keeping all students in school and ultimately graduating.
“I’m very excited to get back on the road and visit many of our Communities In Schools sites!” First Lady Justice said. “CIS does so much for our students, and I’m looking forward to meeting the CIS Site Coordinators and students that I haven’t gotten to meet yet on this road trip,” she said when she embarked on the travels last month.
The road trip began in April in Logan County at Chapmanville Intermediate. The Governor and First Lady started their CIS statewide initiative in three counties in 2018. Since then, the program has expanded to 38 counties, serving well over 91,000 students in 208 schools across the state.
This year’s CIS Spring Road Trip is an extension of First Lady Justice’s “All in for Kids” CIS Summer Road Trip. The sessions will resume in the fall once school resumes.
