Notes from our Director

Hello DATA community,

I hope you are enjoying your summer. The new school year is just under one month away as it begins on August 16! We have been working hard to welcome students back for in-person learning in August. Many of our teachers are attending professional development trainings this summer to expand their teaching practices, several have been setting up internship opportunities for our students to engage in next year, and all are enjoying some time of relaxation to prepare for the upcoming school year. We are anxious to have a more "normal" year and get back to providing the many DATA experiences we held prior to the pandemic.

Below are included some reminders and details for next year, as well as some upcoming dates/events that you will want to mark on your calendars. Thank you for reviewing the many details. Please continue to stay safe and have a fantastic rest of your summer. We look forward to seeing you in August. If you have specific questions, please feel free to reach out. We will share additional details as we get even closer to the start of this new year.

Some details to help answer some frequently asked questions

Dress code -

Students at Roosevelt and DATA do not have to wear uniforms. Students must follow the NEISD Student Code of Conduct and Dress Code requirements. Here is a link to the NEISD webpage with the code of conduct and dress code details. DATA students are encouraged to wear DATA shirts on Thursdays each week as we mark that day as DATA day on our campus. We will have DATA shirts available for students when the school year begins. College shirt days are Wednesdays and TR spirit days are usually Fridays unless football games fall on a Thursday.

Magnet Bus Schedule -

NEISD students enrolled in magnet programs not offered at their Home Campus are shuttled to the magnet campus. Students will ride Home Campus bus to magnet campus & will be returned to Home Campus. Family is responsible for getting student to & from the Home Campus. NEISD transportation department schedules the magnet shuttle buses. Here is the link to the transportation site where the schedule will be posted. At this time, the schedule is not available but will be posted by August 9, 2021.

Backpacks -

During the 2021–2022 school year, North East ISD will no longer require clear backpacks for students at our middle and high school campuses. However, our clear bag policy for events will remain the same. Please click here to watch a video message from Dr. Maika regarding backpacks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6UOR8ejE20

AP exam scores available

The scores for Advanced Placement (AP) exams taken during Administrations 1 and 2 in May 2021 were made available to all students starting Wednesday, July 21. More information can be found on the student AP scores website. Students, be sure to log in and access your scores if you took an AP exam.

Regardless of a student’s score, taking the exam has benefits. And, if students do score a 3 or higher, they can earn college credit and/or placement. Learn more about credit and placement.

If you are signed up to take an AP class this next school year, we will be strongly encouraging you to register for the exams and challenging the exams. For example, incoming freshmen have the opportunity to challenge the AP Human Geography exam in the Spring of the school year and can earn college credit along with the high school credit. Research shows that students who take AP exams in high school are more likely to graduate college on time.
