Irving Independent School District: District to launch Evening School Academy
July 21, 2021
Irving ISD students will have the opportunity to graduate from high school in the evening, thanks to the district’s newest school, the Irving ISD Night OWL Academy. OWL, which stands for âLimitless Opportunities,â offers more flexibility to meet the needs of the student body in the district.
The Night OWL Academy offers students at risk of dropping out or having dropped out of school the opportunity to graduate from high school in the evening. In addition, the academy will help meet the needs of students in the district who have professional responsibilities and need a more flexible school day schedule.
Students attending Night OWL Academy will be able to earn full credit in nine and a half weeks in four and a half weeks. The academy will be housed at the Barbara Cardwell Career Preparatory Center and will be open from 5 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday. It will be comprised of five full-time certified high school teachers who will provide face-to-face instruction to students. Classes will include English, Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, US History, Art, and more.
âRemoving barriers is our goal at Irving ISD,â said Superintendent Magda Hernandez.
“We strive to provide our students with access to opportunities that they might not otherwise have had, and we are committed to ensuring that all of our students succeed.”
The Night OWL Academy is scheduled to open in August 2021. For any questions about the Academy, including how to register, contact Dr. Lance Campbell at 972.600.5023.
