Students will be asked to change any clothing that violates these standards and will not be allowed in the classroom until properly dressed.

Students who fail to follow the Riders Code of Conduct will receive disciplinary consequences up to and including removal from bus transportation. Students will not be able to ride the bus without proper school ID. No student vehicles are allowed on Salazar campus.

Exiting From DAEP:
A review for exit from DAEP will be upon completion of the DAEP program requirements; however, non-attendance or lack of positive progress in behavior and academics may result in an extension of the placement time. Students may return to the home campus only after obligations for completion have been fulfilled. Expulsion from the program can occur if the student chooses to violate the above guidelines or Student Code of Conduct.

District guidelines state that a first placement in DAEP is for 45 days, with a review at 30 days.
Second and subsequent placements during a school year are for 60 days.
Success trackers are used to check and communicate progress across three domains:
- Behavior and Social-Emotional Skills
- Academics (Effort and Grades)
We aim to have all students succeed in all three areas. Students who fall below expectations in any of these areas may need to meet with advisors and administration to set goals and make a plan for improving.
Review for Exit
- Students are reviewed for possible exit from DAEP when they have demonstrated continued success in attendance, behavior, and academics (grades).
- Releases (or exits) are contingent upon the student’s completion of DAEP requirements.
Factors considered in review include:
- Academics (Effort and Grades)
- Our daily class schedule is: 7 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.
- Middle school students have 7 classes a day.
- High school students have 8 classes, on a rotating A-day/B-day block schedule.
- All students’ schedules mirror their class schedule at their home school.
- Students also receive instruction in personal growth, self discipline, and social skills.
Advisory Teachers: Caring Mentors & Advocates
- Each student is assigned an advisory teacher while at Salazar.
- The advisory teacher serves as your student’s advocate, providing guidance on a daily, ongoing basis.
- Parents can expect bi-weekly contact from the advisory teacher.
- Please feel free to contact your student’s advisory teacher with any questions or concerns.
- As needed, students also have sessions with the Counselor, Behavior Resource Specialist, and/or campus Administrators.

- Your student will need to attend school every day for attendance credit AND to earn points toward their successful release from Salazar.
- Class starts at 7 a.m., so students need to be in the front door between 6:40 - 6:50 a.m., to get through the check-in procedure, and be prepared to start class on time. Buses drop off around 6:40 a.m.
- Students are tardy if not in line by 7 a.m.
- Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late will be counted absent from that class on their Success Trackers.
- Parents must report any absences to the attendance clerk so they can be verified in accordance with CFBISD Attendance Policies. Attendance requirements specific to remote learning will be explained by office staff and/or the student’s advisory teacher upon enrollment.
Senate Bill 1, Chapter 37, as passed by the 74th Texas Legislature, establishes the following academic provisions for students placed into DAEP: “Each school district shall provide an alternative education program that focuses on English language arts, mathematics, science, history, and self-discipline . . .”
All students are taught by certified classroom teachers using district curriculum. In addition, activities led by the staff are designed to teach students new ways of thinking and behaving to enhance their self-discipline.
- Parents will select the mode of transportation for the student while at Salazar, by using the school’s Transportation Form: school bus, parent-arranged pick-up, or student walks to/from school.
- Students awaiting parent pick up should be promptly picked up at 2:15 p.m. dismissal. No students are allowed on campus after 2:30 p.m. each day.
