The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District

Formerly known as the Bethlehem Area Education Foundation (BAEF), The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District began in March of 1999, after a one-year feasibility study. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of members of the community working in concert with, but independent of the Bethlehem Area School District. To move the Foundation forward, the Board of Trustees amended the bylaws to include paid employees and hired a part-time Executive Director in the fall of 2014. Over the years, the foundation has worked closely with school district administrators to prepare programs and opportunities for funding that will support rigor, relevance and innovation in classrooms throughout the district.

Communities in School

CIS of Eastern PA and Pinebrook’s collaboration on mental health services in Liberty HS in described in this article/blog.

When Liberty HS teachers or peers notice a student struggling either academically or personally, they can recommend that student to the school’s Student Assistance Process. Once a student’s name is sent through the process, Nancy Ettwein, site coordinator for Communities in Schools of Eastern PA, evaluates the student’s situation to determine which program best fits their needs. If mental health is the primary concern, Nancy connects the student to Pinebrook’s clinical supervisor at Liberty for treatment.
