Bethel has partnered with the following programs to create pathways for Bethel School District paraeducators to become fully certificated teachers. Learn more about the following Bethel-partnered programs below:
Our goal in creating these partnerships is to provide a variety of options that help prospective teachers apply new learning and skills in a practical manner, meet district needs, and result in positive employment opportunities through a comprehensive program that prepares them well.
