The platform brings students, families, teachers and administrators together to ensure a student’s learning process is meaningful, flexible and complete.

Port Arthur ISD serves the city of Port Arthur, Texas and encompasses over 9,000 students and 1,000 teachers across 15 separate campuses. The student population is 90% African American and/or Hispanic with 77% of students receiving free or reduced lunches. The graduation rate in the Port Arthur ISD is 68%.

Dr. Porterie stated, “We are so excited to begin this venture with EmpowerED Solutions. Our goal as educators is to ensure that every child is successful and we truly believe this will be possible through the EmpowerED Solutions platform. It is a statistical fact that parental involvement makes a difference in a child’s academic career and this system will enable us, as district administrators, to create a platform that is both welcoming and seamless to all parties involved. This is a great opportunity for Port Arthur ISD and an even better opportunity for our students.”

Quadrant 4 Education’s President, Shekhar Iyer, stated, “The EmpowerED education platform has again been chosen by another dynamic district Superintendent, Dr. Mark Porterie, who along with his team was looking for an innovative platform to guide the student body to better learning outcomes.
