Learning Services

The Learning Services team works with teachers and principals on the areas of teaching and learning. They coordinate all curriculum areas including instructional strategies and assessment.

Special Education

From our exceptional D/HH program, to Wing Lake Developmental Center's warm and welcoming environment, BHS is proud of the myriad of services we offer special education students.

With the adoption of Michigan academic standards, we continue to work with math and English Language Arts, and science teachers on curricular alignment, depth of understanding, differentiation and performance-based assessment tasks. The District's Portrait of a Learner guides what we do on a daily basis. We work with principals and staff to provide rich professional development to support our teachers with their goals and with their classroom innovation.
