The center will serve as a clearinghouse of information and resources for military families arriving in the area, from general information about the school district such as enrollment and setting up a parent portal account, to issues that affect military-connected families specifically, including counseling and other special resources available to their children in school through the U.S. Department of Defense.
“I want to extend a warm welcome to all of the military-connected families in our area to join us at this month’s grand opening. As we celebrate the Month of the Military Child in April, this resource center will showcase some of the outstanding learning experiences we are able to provide here in Clay County, and ensure military families have the resources they need to help their students be successful in and out of the classroom,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
The event will also feature an open house highlighting the district’s STEM offerings, including computer coding, robotics, microfarms, 3D printing, and other learning tools.
“As a former military spouse, I understand the challenges of relocating a family. I look forward to providing continued support to our military families with the resources we have gathered from the Department of Defense and through our ongoing partnership with DoDEA, and to help these families feel welcome in our schools,” said Kathy Schofield, the school district’s Supervisor of STEM and Military Family Support.
