Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center for Special Education is located at Kent County Middle Schools and provides resources for parents, educators, and the community that will benefit all students with disabilities. The center provides resources, such as videos and books on topics related to disabilities and parenting, evening and daytime trainings with highly qualified speakers on topics that are pressing to parents, support for parents to understand their child’s IEP/IFSP, and a connection between the school and community.

The purpose of KCPS’s family resource center is to provide the skills and knowledge that will enable families of children and youth with disabilities, ages birth to 21, and professionals to function as equal partners in the educational decision making process and to help families assist in accessing services for their children.

Our Parent Coordinator is Nancy Martin.
