Principal’s Message

Dale Cassens Education Complex is a very unique alternative education school that has been designed to meet the individual needs of each student in attendance. Most of our students volunteer to attend DCEC so they can achieve their educational goals, earn credits toward graduation, learn how to manage their maladaptive behaviors positively, and pursue their life-long goals and aspirations.

We can work together to help you achieve your goals – if you believe, you will achieve!

DCEC students are expected to maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average, be in attendance at school, and not engage in behavior which violates the SLPS Student Code of Conduct. Students and teachers work TOGETHER to achieve these goals by engaging in lessons providing high academic rigor, high expectations for student mastery, and positive behavioral supports embedded within the classroom. DCEC has highly qualified staff to work with you in all core academic areas.

We believe in you – TOGETHER IS BETTER!
