Thinking about enrolling with BELA? BELA is a partnership between the Bethel School District and parents who choose to teach their K-5 grade student at home.
Who chooses BELA?
Homeschool, desires the support of a teacher & access to small group instruction. Willing to follow requirements and accept supervision.
Medically fragile students, Type 1 Diabetics, severe allergies, chronic conditions requiring many appointments
Special Education students, students more than one grade level below in one or more area. Students with behavioral challenges who are in the process of being evaluated but who don't yet have a diagnosis to qualify for a special program.
Highly Capable students, some identified who attend Challenge one day each week. Parents feel their strong student is not challenged in school/wasting a lot of time.
The Bethel Elementary Learning Academy (BELA) provides an alternative choice for families with learning or scheduling situations that make it difficult to maintain regular attendance at a traditional school. Over the years, BELA has been a home for families with special needs students, families who homeschool, and families with scheduling issues. Click on the photo below!
