The Blount County Schools Family Resource Center was created to provide assistance and support to families in which there is an identified need.
Goals of the Family Resource Center
- To provide information and support to the families of at-risk youth enabling them to have a successful educational and social experience.
- To network with community programs enabling students and families to obtain services, thereby assisting them in becoming productive citizens.
- To assist parents in obtaining parenting information and support through home visits with one-on-one assistance and referral to ongoing community programs. Parents will be encouraged to become involved in their child’s school program and participate in school activities.
- To assist teachers and administrators in becoming more aware of available community resources and how to access these services.
