WHAT IS DATA?
The Design And Technology Academy (DATA) is a magnet program emphasizing career and professional readiness in the fields of Architecture, Visualization, Computer Science and Scientific Research. DATA provides a rigorous college preparation program building on key design concepts across the curriculum including content area and elective courses.
DATA is housed at Ed White Middle School in the back corner of the campus.Students from across the district, as well as students from outside the district, who meet required academic and behavioral standards, may apply for admission and are accepted based on a lottery system.
DATA has had a wonderful beginning, as our first group of 6th grade students entered the program in the fall of 2015. Over the next three years, DATA will continue to add an additional grade level until it is a full 6th - 8th grade program. The program will continue focusing on professional readiness in continuing on in DATA at Roosevelt. Our program will emphasize computer programming, coding, and information technology integration in core subjects as well as electives.
Please note that if enrollment exceeds the number of students allowed to be in the program a lottery will be held to select students for each grade level. Because this is a new magnet program at the middle school level, the program enrollment goal for each grade level must be met to provide appropriate staffing for the magnet program. If student enrollment for a grade level does not meet minimum district requirements, North East ISD reserves the right to not offer the program for that grade level for the 2015-2016 school year. Our goal is to meet all enrollment requirements to provide the program in all grade levels.
