Sierra School at Plainview

Predicated on strong collaboration and communication between Plainview ISD and our in-district staff, our district programs are designed to achieve their greatest potential. The academic, social emotional, and behavioral needs of each student are met through such means as a high student-to-staff ratio, individualization and small-group teaching approaches and comprehensive behavior management system. Our staff works in unison with district special education and general education teachers to ensure that our students receive the maximum benefits from both district resources and those of our programs.

We are proud to employee certified special education teachers and a licensed school social worker/counselor.

The Sierra School at Plainview offers a specialized, non-traditional, therapeutic placement option for eligible students in grades 2-8.

Academic Rotation Model 

The focus is on utilizing academic supports, social and emotional learning, and positive behavioral interventions to assist students in learning, generalizing, and maintaining positive social, emotional, and behavioral skills across multiple learning environments. Students receive specialized direct instruction in pro-social skills so they can learn to effectively identify and self-regulate their behavior in their least restrictive environment. Target skills may include, but are not limited to, being considerate, appropriate, safe, and engaged (CASE). Students learn and practice mindfulness techniques, self-regulation strategies, thought stopping/thought changing strategies, and motivational techniques that will allow them to gain more self-control and improve problem-solving skills.

Sierra Schools have decades of experience in serving students with complex social, emotional, and behavioral needs. We couple our extensive experience with the latest in evidence-based, specialized instruction, positive behavioral supports and interventions, in addition to social skills training. We routinely assess students’ individual skill levels, collect and analyze data, and use this information to design instructional and behavioral plans.
