The Lincoln School Board is looking to help students with behavioral issues.

During a work session Tuesday Afternoon, board members were presented with a proposal that would expand a program for those with mental illness and extreme behavior needs.

They would be divided into specialized classrooms based on their age and the level of help needed.

"Through a model like this, as we learn, develop and continue to grow it, these students will become functional and more successful," LPS Superintendent Steve Joel said.

The program would be implemented over a three-year period.  Over time, it would use three facilities including the Donald D Sherill, Old Bryan and Yankee Hill buildings.

"These students will realize the opportunities that not only LPS has, but the community of Lincoln has available for them," Joel said.
