About DCEC


The first house is the Lucie Adolescent Parenting Program, LAPP. This is a day care facility for infants and toddlers 0 – 4 years of age. Students volunteer to attend school, on site, while their child(ren) are provided with a safe learning environment.


Our second house is the 7 / 8 / 9 accelerated program, called MAPP (Middle School Accelerated Pace Program). This program is a district wide voluntary program for students who are over age for their grade level and who have been retained more than one time. They may enroll for one year spending one semester in eighth grade and one semester in ninth grade leaving with five high school credits.


The  400 house is specifically used with our Autism spectrum and intellectually disabled students. This house serves special needs students with emotional behavior challenges and/or autistic students with disabilities


Our students with emotional behavioral disabilities are provided with intensive focused instruction with both a dedicated facilitator and classroom teachers, who rotate into the classroom each day. Tier 3 students are afforded the same high-quality education as their Tier 1 and 2 counterparts, along with social skills development and specialized behavior management.


Key strategies to the success of The Dale Cassens Education Complex include:

  • Positive Behavior Interventions & Support Practices
  • School-wide Behavior Management System
  • Computer Based Instruction
  • Individual and Small Group Instruction
  • On-site Behavioral and Mental Health Counseling
  • Opportunities for Parent and Community Involvement

We have been and will continue to be a PBIS model school with gold and bronze status.
