The Guinn Special Programs Center offers programs for at-risk students. These include:
- Expectant Parent Program
- Behavior management programs
- Accelerated curriculum programs for seniors
- Transitional programs
- Dropout recovery and GED programs
The Guinn Special Programs Center staff is committed to the idea that student competence can be built or rebuilt through an approach that combines individual attention, academic success, behavior adjustment, and networking of school and community resources. Coordinated through the Student Management Department, the Center seeks to work with parents, school personnel and community resources as needed in every aspect of serving the District's at-risk youth.
These student-centered programs are a component of the student management guidelines of the Plano Independent School District. These guidelines require a recommendation of placement from the student's home school campus administrative/intervention team.
