The Disciplinary Alternative Education Program is an alternative campus for students who have been placed in our program by their home campus's administration as a means of disciplinary action. While completing their placement at DAEP, students will continue their education in a more structured environment than that of their home campus. All DAEP students are expected to fulfill certain behavioral, attendance, and academic requirements before they are allowed to return back to their home campuses.
SCHOOL HOURS: (8:15 AM – 3:30 PM)
ABSENCES AND TARDIES: (830) 582-1536
- Students who are not on campus by 8:15 AM are tardy. All tardy students will need to be signed in by their parent. There are no excused tardies. Every tardy is considered an unsuccessful day.
- Parents are required to notify DAEP whenever their child is absent. To have an absence excused, students must turn in proper documentation, explaining the reason for the absence.
Note: Students are required by law to attend 90% of the days in the school year.
- Upon arrival, all students will pass through our search process, including removal of socks and shoes, pat downs, and a metal detector. Students will be checked that they are in compliance with our dress-code. DAEP is not responsible for prohibited items upon confiscation during searches. All confiscated items will be returned at the end of the student's DAEP placement. Cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed on campus. In the event that a student does bring a cell phone or electronic device, it will be returned at the end of the students placement.
- All students must wear full length khaki slacks, a brown or black belt, white or black lace up tennis shoes, white or black socks, and a plain white shirt. Shirts must be tucked in throughout the day. No colors, writing, or designs will be permitted on any article of clothing.
- Dress code will be followed the entire day in all areas of the campus. Dress code violations will result in an unsuccessful day.
Note: For the complete dress code policy, see the DAEP Handbook.
- Students will continue their core courses with the instruction of the DAEP's certified teachers and our computer based learning programs. Elective courses will be administered through the DAEP computer based learning program.
- Students home campus provides transportation.
- Providing transportation is a privilege, not a right. Many school districts do not provide transportation to their alternative schools. Consequences for violating transportation rules can range from a warning to complete termination from bus services while at the DAEP.
- Level 2 and Level 3 students must be picked up by a parent or guardian.
