What is FCS Educator Day?

The annual Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Educator Day celebration will take place on the Wednesday of FCCLA Week (which occurs in February).  FCS Educator Day is designed to encourage others to become FCS educators and to recognize and celebrate the important role that Family and Consumer Sciences educators play in our schools and communities.  FCS Educator Day is a part of the Say Yes to FCS:  Filling the Educator Pipeline recruitment campaign, an initiative of ten FCS organizations.
