The Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) is designed as an additional, viable alternative education setting for those students who evidence difficulty functioning successfully in the regular school environment. While the students attending the DAEP have been referred as a direct result of disciplinary actions, the school is not designed purely as a punitive detention center, but rather as a contrasting educational setting. Students are subjected to a structured environment that enables them to concentrate on academic areas. It also allows the teacher to help students adjust social behavior in order for the student to be able to cope with regular educational mainstream. The students are subject to a set of definitive expectations while situated in an individualized educational setting.
Students will earn points daily for attendance, completing their individualized course assignments, and following the rules and procedures explained in this handbook. Upon reaching the number of required points, students will be released to return back to their home campus.
The total number of points required for release will be determined by the number of days assigned to DAEP.
1 point per day for actively working on all assignments
1 point per day for on-time arrival and departure (8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.)
