The goal of the Paris School District is to provide meaningful learning experiences so that students can enhance their potential to succeed in a career of their choice.
The Paris School District is now accepting applications for students wishing to participate in the School Choice Program. School Choice Act 560 of 2015 is the program authorized by the Arkansas General Assembly that allows parents to apply for their child’s admission to participating school districts other than the one in which they reside.
The Paris School district has agreed to accept eligible students from other school districts under the School Choice Program during the 2016-2017 school year. Application forms are available at the Administration Building, Paris Public Schools, 602 N 10th, Paris, Arkansas, and must be hand delivered to this office. Applications for the 2016-2017 school year must be received on or before May 1, 2016, to be considered eligible for the coming school year. This May 1st deadline reflects a change that went into effect on March 20, 2015.
Assignments will be made on the basis of space availability. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance or rejection by July 1st. Students who reside out of state or who are currently expelled from school for a drug or weapon violation are not eligible for participation.
The Paris School District has implemented a new phone system. Parents may connect to any phone in the district by calling toll free 1-844-963-3243.
