Important News from BEA

Stay updated on the most recent issues and actions in Belleville.


We extend our sincere heartfelt condolences to the Vellon family. Ralph was a good man, an advocate for the parents and students of Belleville, an model civil servant, and a true friend to the community. As a Board of Education Trustee, Ralph held true to his values, exemplified integrity and was a major proponent of the necessary change we see in our district today.
He will be greatly missed not only for his contribution to education but also as a colleague and a friend.  Ralph’s legacy will live on for generations to follow.  
We will keep the Vellon family in our hearts and prayers. 
Belleville Education Association



President’s Message

We have successfully rounded the corner and we are steadfast on track for a “Better Belleville”. But there is much more work to be done. We can never, ever get caught on our heels again.

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”   ~Henry Ford

We have witnessed how a small number of passionate people can make great change. It is unimaginable what a large number of driven people can do. I urge all of our members to get involved in our Association – WE ARE ALL BEA.

We have Committees and events to fit every member’s level of commitment. It is more critical then ever that we work in conjunction with the residents of our beautiful community.

Let’s never forget why we are here and why we go to work everyday: We love to shape young minds, make life-long impressions, put smiles on young faces, foster new relationships…
