District Rolls out Quick Tip

Paris ISD has launched a new app, Quick Tip, which empowers students to submit tips and feedback to authorized school administrators over a variety of topics, including bullying, stress, peer pressure, and family problems.  The app, part of the School Messenger notification system employed by the district, was explained along with the Student Crimestoppers program in a recent student assembly.  Read more.

Paris ISD: The App

Now you can conveniently keep tabs on events in Paris ISD on your mobile device by downloading the free app at Google Play Store (for android users) and Apple Apps Store (for iPhone).   In addition to finding content on the PISD website, parents will be able to access student grades and lunch balances.

PISD's Notification System

Paris ISD uses School Messenger to provide timely communications. If you have a child attending PISD, you are automatically in the database and will receive phone notifications. To enhance our ability to accurately deliver information on activities and emergencies, we kindly request that you create your own contact preference profile.

Student Handbook

Rules, procedures, and consequences detailed  in the Paris High School Student Handbook are based on the Paris Independent School District Management Plan which, in turn, is based on PISD Board Policy.  For your convenience those resources are available online.
