KERAlot III Family Resource Center

What is a Family Resource Center?

Family Resource Centers are a part of the Meade County School System, and are funded with a grant through the Kentucky Education Reform Act.  The goal of the center is to enhance students' abilities to succeed in school by assisting children and families in meeting some of their basic needs.  This is done by providing services at the center or by linking families to agencies in the community.  KERAlot III Family Resource Center serves Flaherty Primary School and Flaherty Elementary School.
