Our History, Our Today, Our Future
Mission: Inspire Learning
Vision: Engaging & valuing/caring our students, families & staff.
The current Bellevue Union School District was established in 1919 when the Hearn, Steuben, Todd, and Wilfred school districts voted to form one Union School District (some history). Currently, there are approximately 1,600 students attending Bellevue Union School District, and it is, geographically, one of the largest elementary school districts in Sonoma County.
Bellevue Union School District has been going through an exciting period of growth and educational development. We adopted a new Common Core English Language Arts curriculum for the 2013-14 school year, a new Mathematics curriculum in 2014-15, a Dual Immersion Program, reinvigorated GATE Program, the BUSD Early Learning Center (ELC), and new preschools for fall 2016. Our technology infrastructure is keeping abreast of California Common Core requirements with Chromebooks and iPads district wide. Our students are learning in a 1:1 environment. Chorus is available to all students after school at all sites, after school violin is offered to 5th & 6th graders and we have partnered with Move Over Mozrt to offer piano to all students.
In 2015 we started some major modernization and improvements our school sites, which continue today with new fencing, rooves and the upcoming replacement of the cafeteria/mulit-purpose room at Kawana. Affordable after school care is available at our school sites and school libraries are open a half hour before school starts for early arrivals.
