FSCS Makes Quite an Impression
State Chief Educational Officer Dr. Tracy Severns spent most of a day touring the district’s Full Service Community Schools (FSCS). While visiting 6 schools, Dr. Severns met with principals, program facilitators, doctors, counselors, parents and students, witnessing firsthand the community services rendered under FSCS. This fact-finding tour made quite an impression on the State official, who was quite taken by the sight of adults learning side-by-side with their children at New Roberto Clemente. FSCS programs such as the Mobile Library, counseling, health and dental services, Adult ESL, and “clothing store” were all on the agenda.
