Paris ISD earns distinctions for excelling in accountability ratings

Every eligible campus in Paris ISD earned distinction designations for a district total of seventeen. Paris High School earned five distinctions, Paris Junior High earned three distinctions, Crockett received a perfect five out of a possible five distinctions, Justiss earned three distinctions and Aikin earned one distinction. Travis High School of Choice, Lamar County Head Start, Givens Early Childhood Center, and Paris DAEP are not assessed or rated. Click here to download news release.


How does a school district earn 17 distinctions from the Texas Education Agency's accountability ratings system?  Maybe it starts with students daring to dream big, as members from Paris High's BlueTube student video production program point out in this promotional video.

Quick Tip Information

Quick Tip is a support system that allows students to communicate with school administrators. While the district already has many programs to help students deal with challenges such as bullying behaviors, stress, peer pressure, and family problems, Quick Tip helps break the code of silence often experienced by students because it allows them to report concerns to administrators anonymously.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a crisis line. In cases of emergency, the site will direct students to call 911!
