DAEP

Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) :

The San Benito CISD’s disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP) provides services that meet students’ educational and behavioral needs.

Students having committed Level I infractions (lesser offenses) may be assigned to their respective campus DAEP. Current sites include the three middle schools, 9th Grade campus and high school.

The Joe Callandret Positive Redirection Center (PRC), categorized as secondary DAEP and better known as the “boot camp,” will accommodate students having committed Level 2 and Level 3 offenses. However, Level 2 and Level 3 students will be physically separate from each other.

Requiring a more proactive involvement on behalf of the parent in the discipline of their children, the following redesigned DAEP plan fosters a safe and orderly learning environment for all students.
