The Lester Davis School DAEP

Empowering Lifelong Learners

Welcome to the Lester Davis School

  • Since adoption of the Texas Safe Schools Act in 1995, all Texas public school districts have been required to provide disciplinary alternative education programs (DAEPs). DAEPs serve as alternative education settings for students temporarily removed for disciplinary purposes from their regular instructional settings.

    This prompted Denton ISD to build Touchstone Academy, our original DAEP, which began in 1996-97 school year. Touchstone Academy DAEP was housed at Fred Moore HS through 2003-04. In 2004, the district moved the original DAEP school, Touchstone Academy, to its current location and then was renamed The Lester Davis School.

    We come to school each day to provide a structured social and academic climate in which students chose how they will respond to the world. We are committed to equipping students with behavioral and academic skills that will enable them to succeed in their regularly assigned classrooms and schools.
