What about technology?
Innovative usage of technology will be a cornerstone of the DATA experience. Each student will have access to multiple technology devices for use in their studies. A sophisticated parent portal for full sharing of all assignments, grades, attendance, and discipline will be available. These components will provide the needed infrastructure to integrate technology seamlessly into the day to day work life of the school.
Is there bus service to DATA?
DATA students who live in the Ed White Middle School and/or Roosevelt High School attendance bus zone are eligible to ride their neighborhood school bus. DATA students who live in other areas of NEISD are able to take a morning and afternoon shuttle to and from their home middle/high school (the middle/high school they would normally attend). Students residing outside of the NEISD boundary will need to provide their own transportation.
What support is there for students?
The Academy provides academic support and mentoring to allow motivated students to have access to the most challenging learning opportunities while assuring that success is within their reach. Students will be expected to take responsibility for their learning and take advantage of support opportunities.
Can I participate in Ed White athletics, band, orchestra, etc?
Yes, DATA students are eligible to participate in Ed White Middle School extra-curricular and UIL activities. DATA students are encouraged to be a part of the Ed White community and participate in school athletics, band, orchestra, and academic contests.
