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!

Welcome to Paris ISD
Earning distinctions in the state accountability system is extremely difficult to do, and we should be proud of our students, staff, parents and community members for assisting in achieving these outstanding honors.

Paris ISD earns 13 distinctions in 2016 TEA accountability rating

The Texas Education Agency released the Accountability Summary and Designation Report this month.  Under the new accountability system, schools and school districts will receive a rating of either Met Standard or Improvement Required.  This is the third consecutive year that all of the campuses in PISD received at least one distinction and all “Met Standard.”

The accountability system measures schools and school districts with a four index model.

Index 1, Students Achievement, measures the percentage of all students passing the STAAR exams.  To meet the state standard in this index, a school or school district is required to achieve 60 points.  Paris ISD achieved 70 points.

Index 2, Student Progress, measures the percentage of students who met progress and/or exceeded progress.  Growth is evaluated by subject and individual student groups.  To meet the state standard in this index, 22 is required for a school district.  Paris ISD achieved 40.

Index 3, Closing Performance Gaps, measures the performance of the students who are identified as Economically Disadvantaged.  This also measures the two lowest performing race/ethnicity groups from the 2014-15 school year. Index 3 calculates the percent of students meeting the STAAR passing standard and percent at Level III (Advanced).  To meet the state standard in this index, 33 is required for a school district.  Paris ISD achieved 35.

Index 4, Post-Secondary Readiness, measures high school completion rate and STAAR performance at the final level II standard, to meet the state standard for this index, 57 is required.  PISD achieved 69.
