Family and Consumer Science Department

Family and Consumer Sciences Education empowers individuals and families across the life span to manage the challenges relevant to living and working in a diverse global society.  The relationship between work and family is our unique focus.  Family and Consumer Sciences is a discipline composed of strong subject matter concentrations with a commitment to integration.  Concepts form a framework for learning based on these tenets:
  • Families are the fundamental unit of society
  • A life-span approach to individual and family development contributes to creating lifelong learners. 
  • Meeting individual and family needs inside and outside the home are shared responsibilities.
  • Individual, family and community well-being is strengthened through an awareness of diversity. 
  • The use of diverse modes of inquiry strengthen intellectual development.
  • The content learning in Family and Consumer Sciences classes enhances the mastery of academic standards. 
  • Standards-based learning within Family and Consumer Sciences classrooms can best be demonstrated through performance based assessments.
