The Bellevue School District is continuing to monitor weather conditions for Friday, December 2. Families and staff will be notified on or before 6 am. Learn more about inclement weather and potential closure reminders.

A one-year academic plan was presented to the Bellevue School Board during the October 3, 2017 regular board meeting. The academic plan highlights our strategic priorities to achieve success for all our students.

As we celebrate the many successes our students experience with nationally recognized academic performance, we are keenly aware of our need to improve and eliminate achievement and opportunity gaps that persist for students based on race, special needs, income, and language. We must continue to support all of our students in their efforts to reach high levels of performance.

The following are key elements of the one-year academic plan, intentionally focused on equity and inclusion:

  1. Develop strong, effective leadership teams at every school to improve student learning, school climate and culture.
  2. Implement systems to monitor student progress on academic and social skill development.
  3. Align district resources and plans to support implementation by our schools.

This is a very exciting time for our district.  We are purposefully moving forward to achieve high levels of success with focused support for all students.

I encourage you to look at the one-year academic plan to learn more about the work and provide us with your feedback.  You may contact our leadership team with any questions or comments by emailing  As our work continues, I will provide periodic updates on our progress.

You are an important part of the Bellevue School District team.  Thank you for supporting the district in its relentless push toward academic success, college and career readiness, and the acquisition of positive and productive life skills for all of our students.

In Partnership,
Dr. Ivan Duran
Former Superintendent
