Did you Know? 

In 1994, the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences, other organizations, and programs decided to change the name of the field to Family and Consumer Sciences from Home Economics 

Home economics has transformed into FCS due to the complex social and economic issues that individuals, families, and communities face today. Our emphasis is on issues relevant to today’s individuals and families and skills critical to successful living and working in the 21st century global society. 

Our classes cover topics like personal and family finance, nutrition, responsible parenting, and peaceful conflict resolution, the obesity epidemic, identity theft, and cyber bullying.
