• txConnect, the current parent portal used by Ponder ISD, ceased operation on Sunday, April 19, 2020. Ascender Parent Portal will replace txConnect. This new solution will allow for online registration which has been a feature often requested by our community. Once the new Ascender Parent Portal is available we will let you know.

    Welcome to txConnect -- the online parent portal provided by Ponder ISD . By logging on to txConnect, parents can view their child's academic progress at any time. Communication and parental involvement is vital to each student's success. We hope that this online access will allow parents the opportunity to keep up with their student's progress on a more frequent basis.

    To begin using txConnect, the parents or legal guardians must visit their child's campus in person to obtain a parent portal letter which contains a unique parent portal ID for their child along with specific directions for registering. Please note that PPCD, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade classes do not utilize an electronic gradebook. Therefore parents of students in those grades will not be able to view academic grades online. However the attendance features will still be accessible.
    As always, we welcome your comments. If you have questions on how to use txConnect, please feel free to review the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact your child's school office.  Below are the phone numbers for each campus:
    • Ponder High School
    • Ponder Junior High School
    • Ponder Elementary School
