Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center (FRC) is located at Chuckey Elementary School and open in compliance with the Greene County Schools schedule. The hours are 8:00a.m.-3:00p.m. and later by appointment.

Chuckey Elementary was one of four schools chosen to receive a grant from the State of TN Department of Education during the 2004-05 school year. The Family Resource Center is funded by the State of TN Department of Education with a local match from the Greene County Board of Education and Greene County United Way.

The Family Resource Center is open to all students who attend Chuckey Elementary and their families regardless of income. In addition to providing on-site services at Chuckey, a community outreach program is provided to all Greene County Schools.

The numbers of children who could be considered "at risk" are growing in Greene County as well as in Tennessee. You have seen this in the classrooms throughout our communities and seen how the problems facing these children have a negative effect on their educational activities for the entire classroom. The escalating number and the increased complexity of problems faced by Tennessee families mirror those indicated nationally: sharp increases in numbers of children in poverty, family restructuring, dysfunctional families, homelessness, teenage pregnancies, substance abuse,etc. These stressful conditions have a direct relationship on the ability of the educational system to provide an effective educational experience for children. The schools cannot solve all these problems alone or be the only organization enabling parents to be more responsible and effective with their children. Networking among schools and service agencies through the Family Resource Center is used to maximize services and resources available to children and families to ensure student needs are met so they are ready to learn when they get to school.
