In the 2010-2011 school year, DeSoto ISD established the Where I Now Gain Success (W.I.N.G.S.) dropout prevention and recovery program which has assisted hundreds of students to graduate from high school. The program was started with a $100,000 three-year dropout recovery grant from Texas Education Agency.  After the grant expired, the district continued the W.I.N.G.S. program because it was highly effective.

Today, W.I.N.G.S. offers a blended program (online and face-to-face instruction) designed for credit recovery, credit acceleration, and drop-out prevention. The instructional program is designed for personalized learning supported with intervention using the Edgenuity online program. We are an admissions-based program, in an open enrollment district, and serve students in grades 9 through 12, ages 14 to 25.

We offer 3 flexible sessions to choose from during the school year:

  • AM session (8:00 – noon)
  • PM session (noon – 4:00 pm)
  • Twilight session (5:00 – 9:00 pm for students 20 to 25 years old)

Class sessions during COVID-19 closure:

  • 100% online via Edgenuity
