The FSCS School Coordinator positions were posted.  When interested people apply, they will select their preferred district from a drop-down menu.  They are able to select multiple school districts from that menu.

The minimum education requirements have been modified to an Associate’s degree and three years of human services experience.  This will deepen the pool of candidates.  Additionally, PRI provides tuition assistance to staff and over the course of the five-year grant window, we hope some of our staff with the Associate’s degree will obtain a Bachelor’s degree in education to help support your talent pipeline.  And those who have a Bachelor’s degree, but don’t have certification, can obtain it, too. 

Please share the posting with your networks and with community partners.  As shared previously, we will have extensive onboarding training for the role.  As we get closer to conducting interviews, we’ll be in touch to do those collaboratively.  Here is the link to those positions:

The JCHS YSC & Sand Gap FRC collaborated together to have students go to Sand Gap Elementary School to read to students.  Shout out to Brooke Bellamy, Tiffany Medlock, & Link Crew Leaders for their participation and help.  I appreciate the JCHS Link Leaders in all the work they do and how they are willing to help with FRYSC Programs.  Thank you all.
