• Family and Consumer Sciences Education aims to empower individuals and families to manage the challenges of living and working in a diverse global society. Our unique focus is on families, work, and their interrelationships. It is a comprehensive activity-based program that focuses on providing opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors needed for balancing personal, family and work/community lives. Foods courses require a lab fee for materials used in the course; students enrolled in sewing courses are expected to purchase materials for individual projects at various times throughout the year.
