Disciplinary Alternative Education Program

The Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) offers academic courses in the foundation and elective curriculum areas with students progressing at the same pace as their home campuses. Special needs students’ academic work is modified in accordance with their Individualized Education Plans (IEP). Students earn their grades from the DAEP while working with DAEP instructional methods and materials. Grading standards, averages, and grade reports are in accordance with New Braunfels ISD policies. 

The DAEP is staffed with State Certified teachers and faculty members. In addition, the DAEP has access to diagnosticians, counselors, nurses, and other district general and special education personnel. Students follow a seven period day and rotate through classrooms focusing on English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Elective courses.


NBISD DAEP believes in the value of every student, and that all students are capable of learning and growing. DAEP offers students a place to reevaluate their commitment to the NBISD code of conduct, refocus their goals, and reestablish their desire to be successful. DAEP offers academic courses in the foundation and elective curriculum areas. In addition, DAEP students will also receive lessons developing social-emotional skills.
