WHAT IS DATA?
The Design And Technology Academy (DATA) is a magnet program emphasizing career and professional readiness in the fields of Architecture, Engineering,
and Visualization. DATA provides rigorous college preparation building on key design concepts across the curriculum including content area and elective
DATA is nestled in its own corner of the Theodore Roosevelt High School 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.
The DATA program at Ed White Middle School is in the beginning stages. We will spend the 2014-2015 enrolling 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students to begin in the fall of 2015. The program will be 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.
