    PISD Student emails

    • Students in grades 6-12 receive a district provisioned email address as of Fall 2020. 
    • The District takes very seriously its obligation to protect students’ safety and security in both physical and online learning environments. Therefore, students will only be permitted to exchange emails (send and receive) with designated accounts within the pisd.edu domain (e.g. teachers) or similarly vetted organizations (e.g. Naviance College & Career Readiness Resources). 
    • Email will be subject to monitoring and filtering to further ensure the safest environment possible while still enabling necessary communication related to instruction and learning.
