Family Resource Centers were created in 1990 by the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA). These school-based centers, also known as FRC’s, are designed to promote local identification, coordination, and utilization of community resources to help break down barriers to learning which in turn should enhance students’ ability to succeed in school. Family Resource Centers serve children from birth through twelve years of age.
FRCs are funded through a grant administered by the KY Cabinet for Health & Family Services, provided by state education funds through the KY Department of Education. Schools must have at least 20% of their students receiving free and reduced school meals in order to qualify for a center.
Each Center has a unique blend of program components depending on location, available services, local need and community input. FRC’s must address the following components:
Preschool child care for children two and three years of age
After school child day care
Families in Training
Parent and child education (family literacy)
Educational Student Support
FRC hours are Monday-Friday 7:30-3:30.. and other others by appointment.
Please note: If the FRC is closed during these hours when school is in session, it is due to a meeting, training, community outreach, or illness. Please leave message at the front office, on my voicemail or send an email to email@example.com and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Thank You
