Communities In Schools of Durham (CISD), an education nonprofit that serves more than 300 students and families, including those at Merrick-Moore Elementary School, held a roundtable discussion and lunch from Full Street Wings at the school in October with CISD staff, parents, Durham Public Schools (DPS) principals and teachers who have been impacted by the program. The nonprofit also took this time to thank local policymakers for their investment in Durham’s students.
