Setting IV Behavior Program
This program is designed to meet the needs of elementary, middle school and high school special education students who are having behavior issues in their resident school district. In addition to academics, programming includes social-emotional learning classroom instruction, focus groups, and individual sessions with licensed professionals provided based on the individual student’s educational needs. Referrals are made by the school district and do not require a Rule 79 diagnostic assessment or children’s mental health care management services through the county of residence.

Our Mission 
Belview Learning Center provides social, behavioral, and academic programs directed toward identified mental health and behavioral disabilities to help students gain skills to effectively function in their home, school, work and community environments.

Our History

The Belview Learning Center opened its doors in September of 2003. This program was initially offered under the auspices of the Redwood County Collaborative. Original partners in this program include Redwood County Human Services, Renville County Human Services, Yellow Medicine County Human Services, Southwest Health & Human Services, PACT4 Family Collaborative and the Marshall Collaborative. The City of Belview and its community members were also instrumental in the implementation of our program. Beginning July 1, 2012, SWWC assumed operation of BLC. A Steering Committee comprised of representatives from county human service agencies, area school districts and community members continues to provide guidance and recommendations for the BLC programs.
