The Starkville School District established the Department of Family Centered Programs in 1994 in an effort
of the students served by the District.
Since its inception the Department
has successfully reached thousands of families with
a special emphasis
on at-risk families through numerous
school-based and community-wide programs for all age-groups. A strong emphasis is placed
evidence-based practices and curricula in our programs and services.
Programming is primarily funded through federal, state, local and
private foundation grants.
In addition, Family Centered Programs has established strong linkages with community organizations
in order to provide the services needed by these families.
