Supporting Students Through Partnering With Family Resource Centers
Partnership with Family Resource Centers can leverage an array of resources and supports for students and their families. There are thousands of Family Resource Centers already working in communities across California, ready to help schools serve students and their families. The California Community Schools Network recently released a new chapter (in their LCFF Guide to Student Supports) entitled, Why Family Resource Centers Matter. The chapter outlines promising practices for partnership with family resource centers. A recent blog post by Fiona Lavelle of the California Family Resource Association highlights an example of a powerful partnership between a school district and a Family Resource Center.
