Do you teach Family & Consumer Sciences at the high school or college level? Are you an industry representative or business leader with an interest in Family and Consumer Sciences programs in your community? The National Association of State of Administrators of Family and Consumer Sciences (NASAFACS) needs your help!
NASAFACS is seeking FACS educators and stakeholders from secondary education, post-secondary education, and business and industry to help review the final draft of the Family and Consumer Sciences National Standards 3.0.
The Family and Consumer Sciences Education National Standards form a comprehensive structure designed to accommodate varying state philosophies and issues related to standards and delivery systems. FACS, like other disciplines, is concerned with the integration of academic knowledge and achievement in a contextual approach. Your efforts will help ensure that these standards meet current and projected industry needs.
Want to help? Take 10-15 minutes to review the final draft of the standards by clicking here. Remember to consider the area of study, industry needs for this area, and pedagogy.
The more people who complete the survey, the better the results will be. Feel free to share this message and survey link with colleagues who are qualified to review them as well.
