Families and Schools Together (FAST) is a new program added to the Flint Community Schools District. 

The purpose of FAST is to increase feelings of affection, mutual respect, and kind actions among the child's family, neighborhood, school and community.

The goals of the program are: 


  • Enhance family bonds

  • Strengthen the parent-child relationship

In other words, "It takes a Village to raise a child."  This program fosters the village spirit and cooperation with helping our children to succeed.
