One more One Stop: PAISD registration event hopes to bring process into future

The Port Arthur Independent School District is all about future change and success — a theme they kick-started during registration day on Wednesday.
PAISD held its annual One Stop registration event at the 9th Grade Academy. The event allowed all new and returning students throughout the district to register in one place. This year, the schools changed it up a bit and moved from paper registration to an entirely online system.
“We feel the new registration event went very well,” Superintendent Dr. Mark Porterie said. “We debuted the online registration to make it more convenient for parents and the district, and although we had longer than usual wait times, our parents were very patient. We were able to register over a 1,000 students online. We had a phenomenal response.”
Porterie said this year the school district is looking to show change, and with the end of this event PAISD is looking to the next step to show that.
“This year we want to ensure we have more parental participation and to make sure that students are successful in overall learning,” he said. “That’s what we’re getting ready to start. We want to be more successful than the last year. We’re incrementally becoming stronger everyday and that’s what we want. We want to become stronger for the 2019 school year.”
Parents who missed the registration can still register their children online at www.paisd.org from any connective device.
