  • connection to local and county services


Housed in classroom spaces on both Lone Tree and Bear River campuses, the Family Resource Center is a comfortable space with welcoming staff. 

Bear River School: 8am - 4pm
Wheatland El: 8am - 4 pm


ServicesTop of Page

  • Students drop-in at break, lunch, or after school for help with goal setting, problem solving or a safe fun place to hang out with their friends. We have academic resources and computers, so they can do homework or research projects. 
  • A student store provides access to materials. 
  • Students also may be assigned to the FRC as a study hall or for after-school homework help. Through behavior contracts, the FRC may also monitor student academic or behavior goals and progress and provide incentives.
  • Life Skills provides a time out for student to make up missed work or develop new social skills. This can be assigned for a short-term solution by teachers or more long-term by administrators. In coordination with administration, Life Skills also assists in monitoring in-school suspension.
  • The Mentoring Program starts with a student/parent/or teacher request for mentoring. Our mentors are trained/screened adult volunteers who provide academic and social support to students. 
  • County Resources and Collaboration: Through the Wheatland Youth Collaborative and ongoing communication with several county agencies and programs, the Family Resource Centers can help link families to county services.
