• About Us

    Bethel Elementary Learning Academy (BELA) is a K-5 parent partnership program.  This alternative learning experience offers a blend of on and off-site instruction with certificated teacher support, online courses, and traditional curriculum to meet the unique and individual needs of students.  The school district is ultimately responsible for student learning.

    Daily lesson plans are facilitated by parents at the pace right for their child.  At the same time, every student enrolled in BELA is assigned a highly qualified certificated teacher who is available for face-to-face meetings to collaborate on instructional strategies, discuss academic progress, and set short-term and long-term learning goals.  Attendance, assessments, and academic progress are documented in the Online Learning System (OLS).

    At BELA, families have additional options not available in other alternative learning programs.  Families can take advantage of on campus academic opportunities, such as orchestra, band, and P.E.  Additionally, frequent monitoring of academic goals in the individualized student learning plans is available.

    Our Mission

    Bethel Elementary Learning Academy (BELA) is a partnership between the Bethel School District and parents who chose to teach their K-5 grade student at home. This alternative learning experience offers a blend of on and off-site instruction with certificated teacher support, online courses, and traditional curriculum to meet the unique and individual needs of students. The student is enrolled in the Bethel School District, which will assess their learning progress.
