Back-to-School Newsletter Thumbnail2023 NEWS & VIEWS NEWSLETTER

Our Back-to-School Newsletter is a great resource to use year round!

New signs being installedNEW SIGNAGE AROUND THE DISTRICT

You may notice some new signs being installed around our district. These new signs are meant to reinforce to district visitors that our grounds and facilities are closed to the general public when school is in session. This is not a new policy (9150 - SCHOOL VISITORS), however, we are stepping up our enforcement of these rules to help ensure the safety of students and staff. Anyone that has school related business during published school hours, is welcome to enter through each building's main entrance and check in as a visitor.

This same School Visitor Policy also addresses animals on our school grounds: “Except as set forth in District policy, canines brought on the premises by law enforcement personnel for law enforcement purposes, or in the case of "service animals" required for use by a person with a disability, no other animals may be on school premises at any time.”


pesticide alert with silhouette of bug and weed  The Bedford Public Schools Facilities Department will treat outdoor areas (weather permitting) throughout the months of April - September. The areas to be treated will be announced at least 48 hours in advance on the District website using this Notice of Pesticide Application Link and the main entrance to the facility being treated. The notice document and postings details dates, times, area to be treated, the target pest, the product to be used, the applicator, and reentry guidelines of any scheduled pesticide applications.


Bedford Public School District is proud to offer a high quality education to the residents of Bedford Township, Michigan!

OUR MISSION: All learners will be prepared for lifelong success through:

  • High quality instruction
  • Diverse experiences
  • A supportive environment
  • Strong community engagement.

OUR VISION: Educating for Life!  

Bedford Public Schools continues a tradition of educational excellence that starts with early childhood education in our award winning Great Start Readiness Preschool (GSRP) program. Our three elementary schools: Douglas Road Elementary, Jackman Road Elementary, and Monroe Road Elementary, provide an excellent foundation for students to grow from Young Fives to Grade 5. Bedford Junior High School offers a softer transition from the elementary atmosphere with a school-within-a-school for 6th graders before moving to more independent learning and students switching classes for grades 7 and 8 in preparation for high school. The many academic options available at Bedford High School, along with our Bedford Virtual Academy, means every student can thrive with classes based on their interests or potential choice of college studies or career path. Our Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses teaches real world, hands-on skills in 13 different career pathways. A wide variety of courses, a strong visual and performing arts program, competitive athletics, and extracurricular opportunities all contribute to a well-rounded education for our graduates. Many graduates leave with college credits and/or industry recognized certifications. Lifelong learning continues beyond high school and graduation with our Adult Education programs and other enrichment options in our outstanding Community Education program. 

Bedford Public Schools has an enrollment of over 4,000 students that routinely exceed state averages in assessments such as the M-STEP, MME and SAT thanks to the efforts of our dedicated staff, the hard work of our students, and the support of parents and our community. We are proud to be the Kicking Mules!
