COMMUNITY EDUCATION
FORMS & POLICIES

Bedford Community Education is following State directives and safety protocols. Schedules for in-person programs and activities will be posted as we are given notice that we can safely resume our programming. Some programs may return sooner than others based on our ability to adapt them to meet the current safety requirements.
Our office will be closed. But you can contact us via email and look for updates here. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please note that all registrations have been suspended while the office is closed and we are following the Governor's COVID-19 directives. During this closure, the mail slot will also be closed - do not drop off any registrations; they will not be processed.

When we get the okay to resume our programming, registration for select upcoming programs including soccer, t-ball and driver's ed will be reopened at the appropriate time based on current safety requirements. We will also provide details and options for those programs that were impacted by the closure.

In the meantime, we offer a variety of online courses that are still available. For a complete listing of courses and to register, go to www.ed2go.com/bedfordae.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through these troubled times. Be safe and be well.
