Gov. Ivey announces creation of Alabama Family Central Website
Enterprise Ledger –
Governor Kay Ivey on Monday announced the creation of Alabama Family Central a comprehensive, easy-to-use web and mobile destination that offers parents and families, guardians, teachers and caregivers a one-stop connection to programs and services in Alabama.
Information on childcare, education, family services and health services can all be found here.
“Alabama Family Central will ensure that all parents and children in our state have access to crucial information and resources from numerous state agencies and non-profit organizations,” Governor Ivey said.
“Great parents need strong partners, and I am proud of the strong collaboration between the state and private sector to offer a one-stop shop of assistance for Alabama families. I appreciate the Alabama Partnership for Children spearheading this effort.”
The website offers organized, easy-to-use resources to assist parents and caregivers as they help their children learn from home. From online learning basics to help for every grade and subject, these resources are meant to support and supplement the information school districts are providing to families.
“When I learned that our students would be learning remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my heart immediately went out to the parents who would need assistance teaching their children at home,” Senator Vivian Davis Figures (D-Mobile) said.
“I requested funding to set up such assistance, so I humbly thank Governor Kay Ivey and Senator Arthur Orr (R- Decatur) for granting that request. It was a pleasure working with A+ Education Partnership and the Alabama Partnership for Children to incorporate this idea into their programs, and I look forward to its expansion. Every child deserves access to the highest quality education, no matter their circumstances.”
