    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    It is a pleasure to welcome your child to Home and Career Skills.  There are many new changes taking place and this year promises to be an exciting one. 

    Home and Career Skills is a life management course which teaches skills that your child will be able to use throughout their lifetime.  Classes are scheduled every day for a semester and the teachings are aligned with the New York State Learning Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) and Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS).
