NEW for 2020-21: Family Connections Welcome Form!

If your student qualifies for free and reduced lunch and/or if your family is facing financial hardship there are several community programs that may be able to help. If you are interested, please complete the online form for each BSD student so that your family can be added to the appropriate community program list.  Please select your home school when completing this form.  Note: Being on a program list does not guarantee participation as these programs are funded and managed by our community partners (Bellevue LifeSpring, Backpack Meals, Jubilee REACH, Assistance League of the Eastside, Eastside Baby Corner, Congregation for Kids and more!).

To access the Welcome Form in English, please click here.

Who We Serve

Family Connections Centers serve thousands of Bellevue families each year. While our locations are school-based, all BSD families are welcome to walk into any center throughout the district for support. We believe that the support and resources provided by our centers and specialists can benefit all BSD students and their families. We invite you to stop by a center near you. Family Connections Centers are open during school hours when schools are is session.

Our COVID-19 Response

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.

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Family Engagement Specialists are working diligently to provide families with essential resources such as food, hygiene items, cleaning supplies, school supplies, etc. Family Engagement Specialists are also assisting families with accessing community resources, including but not limited to rent and utility assistance, medical and mental health services, supplemental food assistance, and other types of emergency assistance.
