Brevard OPTIONS Lab and Library

FDLRS East OPTIONS Lab (Brevard)

FDLRS/East is happy to provide up to date resources for parents, teachers, students, and community members. Our OPTIONS Lab, located in Pod 4 of the Educational Services Facility, in Viera (Brevard), houses both our library as well as our production lab in one easy to access location.   

Why the OPTIONS Lab?

We know that students need options in how they engage, how they access their curriculum, and how they show what they know.  Our OPTIONS lab provides a place to research and create those options for students. 

Production Lab 

Our production lab equipment can be used to make materials to support their child at home. You will have access to our computer lab with computers, color printer, bookbinder, ellison machine (die cut shapes), laminator, poster machine, Sizzix, and more.  Our team, with expertise in both academics and visual supports will be on hand to help you brainstorm what materials will best meet your child's needs.

OPTION Lab visits are available on scheduled dates and by appointment.  Scheduled dates will have full use of both equipment and consumable materials.  For appointments, please bring any consumable material you may need, such as cardstock.
