Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
The Bethel School District fully supports the ADA and its requirement to make Websites ADA compliant. We are actively working to meet and maintain those requirements.
The Bethel School Board is seeking community members interested in serving on the District’s Budget Committee. There are three openings and each is a 3-year term.
The Budget Committee provides budget advice and direction, examines the District’s entire budget, and recommends a budget to the School Board.
The School Board will select applicants to fill the positions. Applicants must be registered voters and must live within the boundaries of the Bethel School District.
State Inservice Day was a full day of professional development for Bethel staff.
Classroom teachers, cafeteria staff, secretaries, educational assistants, custodians, bus drivers, technology staff, health assistants. All departments were involved in training.
They learned how students bring the same stressors to school as everyone else, and how sometimes it’s very difficult to focus and learn.
There were lessons on effective ways to understand and engage students and how to help them build resilience.
And, another round of ALICE safety training was provided. Bethel was the first school district in Oregon to fully adopt the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) principles and complete training on the safety procedures for all staff.
Students from all Bethel schools will be taking part in the annual Walk & Roll Challenge Day Wednesday.
Kids will be walking in groups (walking school buses) and riding in teams, with prizes and incentives waiting for them at school.
Some Bethel schools are hosting multi-day activities around walking, biking, scooting and rolling to and from school.
The Walk & Roll Challenge is an energizing event, reminding everyone of the simple joy of walking to school, the health benefits of regular daily activity, and the need for safe places to walk and bike.
Bethel School District and EWEB are partnering on an Emergency Water Station to provide water to the community during an emergency or disaster.
You can receive a free 3-gallon water jug at the grand opening of the water station this Saturday, October 6th, 11:00-1:00 at the Bethel Farm (located behind Prairie Mountain School.)
The water station is the first of at least five that EWEB plans to build throughout the community to supply water during an emergency that disrupts water service.
The established well at the Farm has received a new pump and will soon have a back-up generator to power the pump in case of an electricity outage.
Along with the free water jugs, Saturday’s grand opening will also include a free raffle for prizes and information on how to prepare for potential emergencies.
