Bemidji Youth Learning and Working (BYLaW)

BYLaW is a Special Education, Level 4 E.B.D. program providing full time academic services to students who have not been successful in the traditional school setting. The Bemidji Middle School or High School makes the initial referral to the BYLaW Advisory Committee.

Once students are accepted into the BYLaW Program, they are provided an individualized diagnostic curriculum designed to further their abilities in all areas, but focused on improving their math, reading, and written language skills. The prescriptive curriculum stresses the skills necessary to pass the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments, as well as preparing students to earn their diploma. Students, families, and staff are vital members of each student’s planning team.

The ultimate goal of the BYLaW Program is to assist each student in becoming a productive and contributing member of his/her community.
