About the West Bay Collaborative

About Us

Every Student, Every Learner, Every Day!

This is our focus at West Bay Collaborative, and we work to make sure every one of our learners has access to high-quality, innovative, and responsive educational programs and resources that can allow them to reach their individual successes. Every individual can learn, and we provide the means for them to achieve that. Whether they are in elementary school, just starting the path to a career, or looking to improve themselves, we strive to meet their needs.

We offer a number of programs and services, sometimes in conjunction with member districts and outside agencies, including:

  • Alternative learning and special education programs
  • Transition and vocational services for young adults who are ready to enter the workforce
  • Physical therapy services
  • Behavioral specialists/teacher assistants


The West Bay Collaborative provides students, young adults, and educators with superior educational and transitional programming opportunities and quality professional development.
