Middle School FACS Standards have been developed and Middle School FACS Programs are being approved at the state level. A key component to program approval is involving students in Career and Technical Student Organizations(CTSO) and FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) is the CTSO for FACS programs.
Get your FCCLA Chapter started and to be part of the Pilot Group to have students compete in the following STAR Events at State Conference in 2012: Interpersonal Communication, Life Event Planning, Illustrated Talk and Career Investigation. Check out the New Adviser Info on this website for ideas on getting started.
Starting school year 2012-13 Middle School programs will require an approved program and a credentialed FACS teacher. Questions? contact Katy Blatnick-Gagne, 720-858-2713.
