    What is a Learning Center

    FCE Learning Centers create opportunities for academic, physical, and social growth in an environment that supports students and their families. Students engage in a supportive, cohort based, distance learning environment where FCE learning center teachers and classroom teachers collaborate to build an optimal learning experience. This collaboration contributes to the development of the “whole child”.

    • FCE Teachers who will assist with logging in to class meetings, looking up class assignments, reaching out to teachers, and remaining on task with frequent check ins.
