Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) were established by the Kentucky Legislature as a part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) in 1990. The primary goal of FRYSCs is to assist academically at-risk students to succeed in school by helping to minimize or eliminate non-cognitive barriers to learning. The Family Resource & Youth Service Center at GCMS is open to all GCMS students and their families.

Some of the Services of the Youth Services Center:

• Inform students, parents, and staff about services and activities offered through the FRYSC
