Barry Intermediate School District


The Barry Intermediate School District (BISD) is one of 56 regional educational service agencies within Michigan and proudly serves the Delton Kellogg and Hastings Area school districts. BISD also provides truancy services to all districts that have students who reside in Barry County.

BISD’s primary focus is meeting the needs of Special Education students in Barry County, but we also serve the 0-3 year old population through our Early On program, 0-5 year olds in our Great Start program, students in Kindergarten through 12th grade in a variety of areas, as well as residents of all ages who are seeking different employment opportunities through our Michigan Works! program.

We have designed our website to provide important information to a variety of stakeholders utilizing advanced technologies. Whether browsing or seeking specific information, thank you for your interest in BISD.
