Community Resource Center

On Thursday, February 7, 2019 a Ribbon Cutting was held with the Lavon Area Chamber of Commerce for the new Community Resource Center located in Edge Middle School. The CISD Special Education Team established the Community Resource Center in response to an ongoing need to assist some of our current and new students with dress code items. The center is operated by Special Education Life Skills students under the supervision of aides and partners.

The Community Resource Center is located near the main office of Edge Middle School and is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 - 2 PM. Applications for clothing may be completed once per semester. All visitors must check in the the EMS office with driver’s license or other form of ID. (Immediate needs will be addressed by the school counselors)

The Community Resource Center is 100% supported by local donations.

The CRC can only accept new or gently used school dress code clothing & items from the following list:

  • Solid color polo style shirts with a collar (any color)
  • Khaki, blue, black or grey pants, capris or shorts (minimum 7” inseam)
  • CISD Braves spirit shirts and hoodies
  • University or college shirts and hoodies
  • Appropriate shoes (athletic or casual - no open toes)
  • Basic school supplies (pens, pencils, colored pencils, markers, spiral notebooks, calculators, earbuds)
  • Personal items (socks, underwear - must be new and unopened)
  • Monetary donations to purchase needed items
