• Mr. Carlos Vázquez, MSW








    Hello everyone, my name is Carlos Vázquez. I am currently the Communities in Schools (CIS) Site Coordinator for Allison L. Steele Enhanced Learning Center (ELC) and the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP). 

    A little bit about me: I'm originally from New York City and am a Texas transplant by way of the Army. During my time in the military, I was assigned to various locations around the world. I am a combat veteran (both in Iraq and Afghanistan) with over 20 years of counseling soldiers and their family members. 


    Communities in Schools' Core Beliefs


    CIS works to ensure that all our students are surrounded by a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve the best of their potential.

    We believe that every child needs and deserves the following five basic needs, which are:

    • A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
    • A safe place to learn and grow
    • A healthy start and future
    • A marketable skill upon graduation
    • A chance to give back to peers and their community


    Our Services

    CIS provides core services, implemented by campus-based Site Coordinators, to more than 3,000 case-managed students annually.

    Some of the services we can provide include:

    • Career Awareness & College Preparation
    • Counseling & Emotional Support
    • Dropout Prevention
    • Health and Social Service Referrals
    • Mentoring
    • Parent & Family Involvement
