Sierra Program



The Sierra Special Education Program serves students, kindergarten through high school, who meet the state’s seriously emotionally disturbed criteria. MCOE provides services to students who have severe emotional problems that interfere with their educational performance. Physical and mental limitations must be ruled out as the primary reason that a student is not learning in a normal manner. The program emphasizes social skills training and interagency collaboration, including the Merced County Mental Health Department.
