Research shows that students develop new math understanding by connecting rich classroom experience to prior understanding and then reflecting on their thinking.
Family Connections Centers
The Bellevue School District is committed to affirming and supporting all families and students. Our Family Connections Centers (FCCs) are open to all BSD students and families. Staffed by Family Engagement Specialists, their mission is to connect families with district and community support services, provide them with educational opportunities to better navigate the school system and help them become engaged in the education of their children.
Family Engagement Specialists (FES) are here to help families find and receive the services they need to send their children to school ready to learn. These services range from emergency food boxes to a student’s first new pair of sneakers, to English classes for parents. In addition, an FES provides information and referral services connecting families with counselors, food and utility assistance programs, and free or reduced health care information and programs.
Two Family Connections Centers will be open throughout the summer to support any BSD family:
