Beaver County Educational Trust

Dedicated to Promoting Excellence in Education



The mission of the Trust is to broaden the opportunities for educational experience and cultural enrichment in ways that may be unattainable for individual schools, to inspire higher levels of motivation and achievement for students, and to build a reputation for Beaver County as a leader in quality education. Our function is to evaluate the unmet needs for quality education in the County, to provide leadership in developing programs that will address such needs, and to generate and administer the necessary funding.

      The program targets children from birth to the age of 5. If your children are older they have aged out and would not be eligible to participate.

      Further, the BCET does not have a formal policy against enrolling multiple children, however, typically the same age appropriate books are sent to children as they mature from infant to toddler to preschooler. The first book sent, “Good Night Moon”, has been the same for years. So, anyone enrolling multiple children would potentially end up with multiple copies of the same 10 books. That is not to say titles don’t ever get swapped out, but it is a rare occasion when they do.

  • My idea is to take 27 first graders who are becoming immergent readers. I would take the chidenbto vidittwo nursing homes while they read stories and sang to the patients.
