Minnesota State Academy for the Blind Foundation

Empowering students to reach their full potential

Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) Room

FACS Space Renovation Plans

The Family and Consumer Science (FACS) Room is used to instruct MSAB students in the expanded core curriculum area of  independent living skills including cleaning, cooking, household cares, etc. These are areas that the students at MSAB need direction instruction and are vital for their success in the world beyond school. The students at MSAB due to their vision loss do not pick this information through observation as their sighted peers do.

The FACS room has not been updated in over 20 years and is in need of updating to meet the current needs of the students.

MSAB Foundation and state funding will be used to create the beautiful space depicted in the plans.  Click on the document to the left for a preview.

Construction is estimated to be completed by the end of 2019.  Check back for updates and pictures.
