Bert Goens Learning Center Programs and Services
We collaborate with Project Find, Van Buren ISD programs, and with local districts in Van Buren ISD to identify students who will benefit from the programs and services offered at the Bert Goens Learning Center (BGLC) as determined through the IEP process. All students of the BGLC must meet the special education
eligibility requirements established by the State of Michigan and by the Van Buren ISD. A student transferring to the BGLC from a similar program may be placed immediately following verification of his or her previous IEP. Students referred from local districts or transferring from dissimilar programs are subject to a screening process, the intent of which is to assure that the BGLC is the most appropriate educational setting for the student.
BGLC Vision StatementThe Bert Goens Learning Center will be a student-centered environment with a state of the art facility that promotes learning of life skills, academics, and technology.
