The Elementary DAEP provides proactive, positive, focused behavior support and a solid, individualized academic foundation based on high standards for all students assigned to our campus. By using research- based interventions, resources, intensive monitoring, consistent reevaluation and continuous intensive instruction that follows the ARRC, we guide students to learn and apply the necessary skills to become safe, responsible and respectful in all settings. Furthermore, we empower learners to be academically and socially successful by providing and developing life-long tools and strategies, along with healthy alternatives for expressing their feelings in order for them to take ownership of their actions and to meet their individual academic and behavioral goals.
The Elementary DAEP will be a world-class standard of student centered alternative educational placement. Utilizing proactive, research-based interventions, we will create a safe learning environment to apply high academic and social standards in our students. We will create and encourage partnerships in all settings with all stakeholders to foster the success of our students. We will guide and teach our students self-advocacy and decision making skills while empowering them with a sense of personal responsibility, accountability, and achievement, to ensure each students successful return to their home campus.
The Elementary Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (Elementary DAEP) was established in response to the Texas Safe School Act, 1995. The Texas Safe School Act requires districts to provide an alternative educational setting for students who engage in adverse behaviors which interfere with the learning of self or others. A student must be at least six years of age before they can be moved to the DAEP.
