Brussels ES/HS: Policies and Procedures


Students whose sponsors are retired military, unauthorized DoD employees, non-DoD government workers or non-government personnel must pay tuition. DoD dependents that are authorized attendance in a DoDEA school may complete the current school year if the DoD sponsor is transferred, dies, or retires during the school year. The tuition rate is payable at the start of each semester. Tuition rates vary according to the sponsor's affiliation with the U.S. Government. If additional information is required, contact the Registrar DSN 368-9552 CIV 02/717-9552.


The counselor is available to meet with students individually or in small groups. The counselor will help students with educational, personal, social, or scheduling concerns. Class schedules may be changed only in accordance with the guidelines as stated. Parents who wish to meet or talk with a counselor can phone 368-9557 or 02/717-9557 to discuss concerns or make an appointment for a conference.

Military &Family Life Consultants (MFLC)

Due to the unique challenges faced by military families, especially during this time of war, the Department of Defense has contracted professional licensed consultants to provide non-medical counseling services to Service members and their families. BrusselsAmerican School is fortunate to have consultants assigned specifically to us. They are designed to provide anonymous, confidential support to Soldiers and their family members, especially those returning from deployments. Call the Main Office (368-9552 or 02/717-9552) to contact the MFLC at BAS.


Students who have handicapping conditions or learning issues may be entitled to special education services under Child Find. Teachers are trained in the referral process; however, parents with questions or concerns may call 368-9571 or 02/717-9571 for information.
