BCS has an outstanding Educational Support Services program where students receive personalized instruction in reading and mathematics with our ESS teacher or a well-qualified paraprofessional. In order to qualify for educational support services, a student must first be referred by their classroom teacher and evaluated by the ESS teacher.
The CLC provides BCS with Christ-centered educational, psychological, vocational and advocacy services for students experiencing unique needs and gifts.
Our school psychologist is provided by the CLC on a referral basis. Referral forms are available upon request. Testing is done at the CLC building in Wyoming. Results of the tests are shared with all concerned parties.
Zeeland Public Schools offer the following services for BCS students who qualify: physical therapy (large motor muscles), occupational therapy (small motor muscles), speech and language therapy and social work.
Our speech therapist is also provided by Zeeland Public Schools. The therapist works with qualifying students with speech problems who have been referred to her by their classroom teacher.
