Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program


The Dallas County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (DCJJAEP) serves students who have been expelled from their home school campus or who have been placed in the program by a Juvenile Court Judge. The length of enrollment depends upon the referring school district and the type of referral.

Students receive instruction in the four core courses of Math, Science, English/Language Arts, and Social Studies. The student to teacher ratio is 1:24 with many classes containing 12 students. The DCJJAEP also offers GED preparation courses for students who need an alternative outside of regular course work. Each student is assigned a caseworker to help them develop and maintain educational goals while in the program.

Location: DCJJAEP is located at 1673 Terre Colony Drive, Dallas Texas 75212.

Transportation: School districts organize transportation for their students attending DCJJAEP.

Uniforms: Students are required to wear khaki pants with either a white or green collared shirt. Students are not permitted to wear solid colored blue or red shoes.

School Hours: The school day goes from 9:40 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., Monday through Friday.
