Private/Home School


If your child attends private or home school in Paris Independent School District, and you suspect your child may have a disability, please contact Joi Roberts or D’Anna Graham at 903-737-7494.  An Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) meeting will be offered to propose an Individual Education Plan (IEP).  The ARD committee will determine eligibility and ask for a Service Plan for private school children.

After consultation with private schools, parents of children in special education placed in private schools, and a review of funds available, Paris ISD determines what services will be offered.

A Service Plan would then be developed based upon funds available for services for children in private schools.  These services typically include but are not limited to:  speech therapy, materials to assist private school teachers/staff, or training for private school teachers and staff.

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.

Submit from App
SchoolMessenger Quick Tip app is available for both iOS (iTunes App Store) and Android devices (Google Play). Download SchoolMessenger Quick Tip App. When launching the app for the first time, you will be prompted to enter the school district code. The school district code is paristx.

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