Senior Tablet Rollout

PAISD is Making Devices Available for 12th Grade Students
 
laptopPort Arthur ISD is committed to ensuring its students have access to online learning opportunities, during this unprecedented time. Because learning is now taking place outside of the traditional classroom, the district will begin distributing a limited number of devices the week of April 20, 2020. PAISD will place its focus on students in grade 12 to support learning at home in order to avoid achievement gaps.  Senior students MUST fulfill the graduation requirements to receive a 2020 Memorial High School diploma.  All devices MUST be returned at the end of school year.
