Family Education Center

 

The Moss Point School District Family Education Center believes that the involvement of family and community partners is critical to student success. The Family Education Center exists to better engage our families and community partners.  The FEC strives to utilize the histories and cultures of our families, community, and students as the foundation of an Educational program that develops every student to be a world-class citizen. 

 

The Family Education Center provides a great learning environment for all ages.  We have Reading Interactive rooms that include: Reading Nooks, a Computer Lab, Tiger Bayou, Maritime, Innovation Alley, and a Black Light Interactive Room.  The Family Education Center is open for independent learning Monday-Wednesday from noon until 3:30.  The FEC is also available at other times during the week by appointment.  Please call 228-217-3922 if you would like to schedule a time other than the regular hours.

The P-16 Community Engagement Council
The State Board of Education mandates compliance with Accountability Standard 12, 12.1, and 12.2 MS Code 37-18-5(4).  P-16 Community Engagement Councils are intended to be community-based and independent.  The Councils are an essential opportunity to build community engagement.  The Councils are charged with the duty and responsibility to build strong, healthy communities.  In order to build strong, healthy communities it is necessary, among other things, to create a quality public education delivered to students in healthy schools which are accessible to all children, regardless of race, class, status, gender or disability.  Since these goals cannot be achieved within a year or two the Councils will need to develop a “comprehensive plan” that attempts to answer these two questions:
 
  • “What will a strong, healthy community, rooted in a quality public education system, need to look like 10, 15, or 20 years from now?”
  • “What do we have to do this year, next year and the years that follow in order to build this process in the right direction?”
 
The Moss Point School District P-16 Council meets monthly. If you would like to learn more about the Council and engaging in building a strong, healthy community, please join us at one of our meetings.
