Family Resource Center

The Blount County Schools Family Resource Center was created to provide assistance and support to families in which there is an identified need.

Goals of the Family Resource Center
  • To provide information and support to the families of at-risk youth enabling them to have a successful educational and social experience.
  • To network with community programs enabling students and families to obtain services, thereby assisting them in becoming productive citizens.
  • To assist parents in obtaining parenting information and support through home visits with one-on-one assistance and referral to ongoing community programs. Parents will be encouraged to become involved in their child’s school program and participate in school activities.
  • To assist teachers and administrators in becoming more aware of available community resources and how to access these services.
