General Information

What is Family, Career and Community Leaders of America?

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a national organization of students who have taken or are taking a course in family and consumer sciences classes through grade 12. 

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is incorporated as a private, nonprofit career and technical organization.  FCCLA is one of the 10 national career and technical student organizations which operate through career and technical education programs in schools.

How does Family, Career and Community Leaders of America relate to class?

The main goal is the same: to improve personal, family, community, and job/career life.  The family and consumer sciences teacher is the advisor of the chapter.  The teacher/advisor uses the structure of the chapter to give family and consumer sciences students leadership experiences in planning and directing their own activities that in turn give family and consumer sciences class more meaning.

Membership is voluntary for all students who have taken or are taking a course in family and consumer sciences education.  Both young women and men are members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.

How is Family, Career and Community Leaders of America financed?

FCCLA is supported primarily by student membership dues paid annually.  The organization also seeks individual, corporate, and foundation gifts.  State association dues are set by each association and are voted on by the state membership.  Regional and chapter dues are set by each individual group and approved by the members.  In addition, chapters may receive money through donations, grants, and fundraising activities.

What does your membership support?

Standards and Curriculum Frameworks

Standards and Curriculum Frameworks

National Standards for Family Consumer Sciences Education

LEAD FCS (Leading, Engaging, Advocating, Developing Family & Consumer Sciences Education) is a network of state administrators. LEAD FCS is an affiliate of the Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCS) Division of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE). This organization first began development of national standards for family and consumer sciences in May 1995. The resulting work became a powerful tool for showcasing the movement from home economics, with an emphasis on technical homemaking skills, to Family and Consumer Sciences Education & Human Services, with its focus on broader family and society issues, and provided significant new direction for the field.

In May 2014, LEAD FCS initiated a project to update the national standards, utilizing a highly participatory process that has involved well over 2,000 stakeholders providing recommendations for the third edition. The Family and Consumer Sciences National Standards 3.0 continues the proud tradition of providing the framework for national, state, and local program that prepare students for family life, work life, and careers in Family and Consumer Sciences by empowering individuals and families across the life span to manage the challenges of living and working in a diverse global society.

Common Career Technical Core

Missouri FCSHS is responsible for programming in these three clusters: Education and Training #5; Hospitality and Tourism #9; Human Services #10.

The Common Career Technical Core (CCTC) is a state-led initiative to establish a set of rigorous, high-quality standards for Career Technical Education (CTE) that states can adopt voluntarily.  The standards have been informed by state and industry standards and developed by a diverse group of teachers, business and industry experts, administrators and researcher.

The CCTC includes a set of standards for each of the 16 Career Clusters™ and their corresponding Career Pathways that define what students should know and be able to do after completing instruction in a program of study.  The CCTC also includes an overarching set of Career Ready Practices that apply to all programs of study.  The Career Ready Practices include 12 statements that address the knowledge, skills and dispositions that are important to becoming career ready.

FCSHS Curriculum Frameworks

Requires separate program approval -2 or more course required in the program of study.
These Programs of Study are offered at Comprehensive High Schools or Career Centers.

Offered Only at Career Centers

 

Funding & Forms

50/50 Career Education Grant funds allow CTE programs to purchase EQUIPMENT or CURRICULUM ENHANCEMENT resources.

The district may NOT use Enhancement Grant funds or Perkins funds to match the funding of the 50/50 reimbursement.

    Enhancement Grant

    The purpose of the Vocational-Technical Education Enhancement Grant is to expand and enhance the quality of Missouri's occupational preparatory (long-term) career education programs. This is accomplished through improved alignment with business and industry occupational training needs and increased emphasis on training in occupations determined to be in critical shortage.

    For more information regarding the enhancement grant, contact lori.brown@dese.mo.gov.

    Mentoring

    Welcome to Family Consumer Sciences & Human Services Education!

The goal of the program is to support both the protégé and the mentor in creating a professional learning community.
