Family Resource Center
Manchester Public Schools offer Family Resource Centers (FRC) at all elementary schools and at Bennet Academy.
Every site has the same approach, with components that include family engagement; outreach; positive youth development; resources and referrals; and -- at the elementary level -- playgroups.
Funding for the program comes mostly from the district’s Alliance Grant, from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and from Title I.
If you want more information please contact the FRC coordinator at your school or Latasha Easterling-Turnquest, the district's Director of Family Partnerships.
