    Mission Statement

    Behavior Intervention Program is a small school environment that focuses on teaching students skills for success across all settings: academic, social, emotional, family and community.


    Hospital Program

    The Hospital School Program is committed to providing students a flexible, motivational environment which fosters an engaging and relevant education through the collaboration of hospital services and education for the hospitalized child.

    In doing this we value:

    • Identifying the student's cognitive and physical functioning during her/his rehabilitation.
    • Working with the student's regular school to make the transition from the hospital as smooth as possible for the student and her/his parents.
    • Providing each participating student with a unique education plan and program.
    • Oregon State Hospital Salem Campus (18-21 years old only).


    Behavior Intervention Program

    The Behavior Intervention Program serves special education students in grades 1 – 12 whose IEP is centered primarily on behavior goals. This program will focus on teaching pro-social skills to students in an academic setting taught at the student’s level. The goal is to teach students skills they need to be successful in a less restrictive environment. Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is a key program component.
    The Behavior Intervention Program is located at the Willamette ESD Yamhill Center located in McMinnville.
