  • What is the FRC?
    FRCs were created as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) to provide information and/or referrals to families in the school's community. Because there are many barriers that can get in the way of a child's success in school, the center works to ensure that needed resources and support are made available in order to remove any obstacles. The center also strives to provide an inviting, warm atmosphere where parents can feel comfortable and confident in taking an active part in the school and in the lives of their children. By working together, the center and families can replace educational barriers with bridges of opportunity and success.
  • Who may use the FRC?
    Our FRC serves all children, parents, and families in our community.
  • When is the FRC open?
    The center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Evening appointments may be scheduled by calling 485-8348.
