Household Letters

Socioeconomic Information Form

We are pleased to inform you that Port Arthur Independent School District will be implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for School Year 2019-2020. In CEP schools, meal applications are no longer required, however, as a replacement, PAISD will need each household to complete the required socioeconomic information form. You can access the form from our website by going to the Parents tab and selecting Student Registration and downloading the file. Please return the form to your students’ school or the administration. The form is also available electronically in the Home Access Center under the Home Screen and School Links tab. 

Port Arthur ISD is required to collect and report the socioeconomic status of each student to the Texas Education Agency for purposes of the annual state accountability ratings and for federal reporting. Please note that this form is not sent to the Texas Education Agency and that the income levels indicated for your family are not reported to the Texas Education Agency. Only the Economic Disadvantaged status of each student as determined by the information provided is reported to the Texas Education Agency.
