District

Draft Learning Model

Dear Belchertown Families and Staff,

After a spring unlike any before, I write to you regarding Governor Baker’s, in conjunction with Commissioner Riley, guidance around the reopening of schools. Each school district in Massachusetts is now required to develop a local district plan to support three models of reopening: 1) in-person learning with new safety requirements; 2) a hybrid of in-person and remote learning; and 3) remote learning.  Please know this is a 'working document" and may change with new guidance or unforeseen circumstances.  Please click the link below.  On Tuesday, July 28, 2020 there will be a school committee meeting beginning at 6:30PM to discuss each model.

Welcome to BPS

Welcome to the district homepage of the Belchertown Public Schools’ web site.  Belchertown is located in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, has one of the largest land areas in the Commonwealth, and borders part of the Quabbin Reservoir, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the country. Belchertown is considered a "semi-rural" community with scenic landscape,with an estimated population of approximately 14,000. We have approximately 2600 students enrolled in five schools.

 Built on CORE values of respect, responsibility and relationships, all Belchertown school age children and young people regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, or disability are welcome in the Belchertown Public Schools.  As a School System, we strive to provide a dynamic, rigorous learning experience in a safe and caring environment where each student is valued as an individual within our schools' community.  We respect that each student's life creates its own story through family, friends, education and experiences, thus, the Belchertown Public Schools create challenging learning opportunities for students to apply their skills, creativity and knowledge, stretch themselves and become resilient citizens in an ever changing world.  We are grounded in the belief that every student's story contributes to the vibrancy of our school community making it a colorful and rich tapestry.
