Welcome to the 2019–20 School Year

Hello Everyone,

I would like to take a moment to welcome you to Baldwin Community Schools. At Baldwin, we have a lot of things going right for us. We incorporate the balanced calendar to ensure that our students are able to retain their learning from school year to school year. Summer learning loss has interrupted children's learning for a long time, and Baldwin Community Schools has found a creative solution. In addition, we have a focus on college preparedness, and work closely with the Baldwin Promise Authority to find a way to reduce or eliminate the cost of college for our graduates.

Our staff cares greatly about our students. The adults at BCS are passionate about preparing our students for the promise of tomorrow. That promise includes not only academic growth, but social and emotional growth, as well. The adults at BCS believe that our children deserve the very best — and everyone strives to provide that!

Rick Heitmeyer, Superintendent

Mr. Rick Heitmeyer -

Superintendent of Baldwin Community Schools


 Mr. Heitmeyer has several years of educational experience. He has been a teacher, coach, athletic director, curriculum director, principal, and superintendent. His career has included stops in Vestaburg, Central Montcalm, Buckley, Vanderbilt, and Baldwin.

Mr. Heitmeyer has a passion for students and believes that it is the job of educators to help each student chase his or her dream – regardless what the dream might be. Mr. Heitmeyer believes everyone is an individual. He believes we should embrace that each child is unique.

"We have to be the ones who help kids dream big and assist them in chasing those dreams," Mr. Heitmeyer said. "If children want to be nuclear scientists, doctors, or NBA players, who am I to say they can't do that?"

His own children are successful, as well. Amber is a customer service representative for DTE and Courtney is a behavior analyst for CMH in Central Michigan for the autism program. Both children are graduates of Central Michigan University. Mr. Heitmeyer has three degrees from CMU. His wife, Lori, has a Bachelor’s Degree from CMU and a Master’s Degree from Western Michigan University.

Mrs. Heitmeyer is a counselor at Alma Middle School. With Mr. Heitmeyer joining the Baldwin Panthers, now he and his wife are both "panthers."
