Students in the Irving ISD will now be able to earn a high school diploma in the evening.
Next month, the school district plans to open the Night OWL — Opportunities Without Limits — Academy to better meet the needs of students.
The academy will target students who are at risk of dropping out or have already dropped out of school, as well as students who have daytime work responsibilities and need a more flexible school schedule, the district announced in a news release.
Students will attend classes from 5 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the district’s Barbara Cardwell Career Preparatory Center, 101 E. Union Bower Road, and will be able to earn a full credit in nine weeks or a half-credit in 4.5 weeks.
Five, full-time certified high school instructors will teach English, algebra, geometry, biology, chemistry, U.S. history and art, among other subjects.
