Tier Three Behavior Programs provide day educational services with a therapeutic treatment component to improve academic and social/behavioral skills. Students are considered for Tier 3 programs when previous interventions have not effectively enabled students to benefit at their school. Tier 3 Programs include:
Bridges Behavior Programs are located at Horace Mann Elementary School for elementary students. Focused on developing social, self-control and academic skills, Bridges classrooms provide a highly structured setting with a low student to staff ratio during the school day. Therapeutic counseling is available for small groups and individuals based on students needs. As students progress toward achieving their goals, they begin a gradual reintegration back to their home school.
These programs are designed to work with students who have cognitive limitations and are experiencing behavior problems that make it difficult for the student to succeed in their regular attendance centers. The students work on academic and social skills in addition to structured workstations tasks. As students progress toward achieving their goals, they begin a gradual reintegration back to their home school. An Individual Education Plan (IEP) team determines placement at the Structured Teach Program.
The Success Academy Program has three classrooms to work with students with disabilities from middle and high schools. The students are provided with a safe, structured setting in order for them to work on improving their behavioral and academic skills. As students progress toward achieving their goals, they begin a gradual reintegration back to their home school.
Summit Oaks Center Day School
Summit Oaks Center has a day program for Sioux Falls School District students to improve their academic, social, and behavior skills in grades 6-12. It includes an individual, group and family counseling component. As students progress toward improving their academic and behavior goals, they begin a gradual reintegration to their home middle or high school.
The Odyssey Program is located at Axtell Park Building and includes three classrooms of students from middle schools whose behavior has interfered in their learning and/or the learning of others at their home attendance center. The students are provided a structured setting for them to work on improving their behavior and social skills while continuing their middle school course work. As students progress they begin a reintegration back to their home school.
