The Terrell ISD Terrell Alternative Education Center (TAEC) staff is committed to the idea that student competence can be built or rebuilt through an approach that combines individual attention, academic success, behavior adjustment, and networking of school and community resources. Coordinated through the Student Management Department, TAEC seeks to work with parents, school personnel and community resources as needed in every aspect of serving the district's at-risk youth.
Our teachers are arranged in an instructional format that supports learning and collaboration. They are participants and contributors to a learning community that aligns goals for continuous instructional improvement. This configuration and partnership with our feeder campuses will ensure high academic standards for all.
