If you ever need help with your school work, there’s someone available to help you 24/7 on Paper.

Available anytime, anywhere, no matter what you’re working on, you’ll be able to connect with an expert tutor instantly. These are real people who are friendly, approachable, and want to help you succeed. To learn more about Paper and how you can get started, visit the MDE + Paper Website and check out the student resources.

To get started with a tutoring session all you have to do is log in, ask your question, and they’ll give you a helping hand. To login:

  1. Visit PAPER’s student login page

  2. Type your school’s name

  3. Log in via Google using your school credentials

Once you let a tutor know what you’re working on, you can expect them to ask you questions about what you’ve tried, what you understand, what you don’t understand, and from there they’ll talk you through the steps. Paper is a place for you to improve, and that doesn’t happen when you just look up answers.

If you have any questions about your account, please ask your teacher.

Renewing Your Car Tag Soon?


Teachers can apply for $500 grants from the $30 collected fee on each tag. This grant money is awarded to Gulfport School District teachers who complete an accepted grant application. Our teachers work so hard for your children. They often buy items for students and their classrooms out of their personal funds.

You can help :

Ask about a G Tag at the Harrison County Tax Collection Office or switch to the G tag when you renew your car tag.

Get your G Tag to show support for your community and help raise money for teacher grants, while personalizing your car all at once! #LoveGSDTeachers #MyGtag #AnchoredInExcellence #YouMeandGSD .

You can find the steps to check your child's grades here! Teachers' grades are expected to be updated weekly each Monday afternoon.

Revisiting Difficult Learning Standards

If parents need assistance with helping students master difficult learning standards, the GSD maintains a YouTube page entitled "GSD Instructional Programs" that features instructional videos created by our very own Gulfport teachers. Take a look and subscribe!

We currently have 353 instructional videos, and each video provides a great lesson listed by standard for students and/or their parents to view. Parents can also visit the Mississippi Education Series link below to view other recorded lessons by GSD teachers and staff.
