• What Is Family and Consumer Science (FACS)?


         It is our goal to infuse the New York State Education Standards into our curriculum and lessons. By doing so, we can ensure that our students receive a quality education focusing on the guidelines and areas of importance by the state.


         Home and Career Skills is a  New York State mandated course taught in grades 5-8 in the discipline of Family and Consumer Sciences. It is a course designated to prepare students to meet their present and future responsibilities as family and community members, consumers, home managers, and wage earners. The goal is to educate students to think constructively, make sound decisions, solve problems, and manage resources.


         In addition, Home and Career Skills supports the New York State Standards taught in the academic disciplines of Math, Science, Technology, English Language Arts, Social Studies, Languages Other Than English, and the Arts by providing real-world opportunities in which to apply the key ideas and skills taught in those courses.
