Harmony Public School Home Visit Program Est 2000

 

Harmony Public School Home Visit Program Est 2000

Harmony Public Schools implemented home visits over a decade ago now called HPS PATH program (Parent and Teacher Home visits). We are proud to announce that all six districts and 58 campuses are active participants in the HPS PATH Program.

Home visits are intended to develop a positive and impactful relationship with families. This is an opportunity to get to know you and your child in the comfort of your own home. Time is taken to share your Hopes & Dreams for your student, academic expectations, and share school resources. Home visits are not parent/teacher conferences.  They are meant to “get to know each other” and to build a viable relationship for the academic benefit of your student.

Studies show that this program has increased student academic achievement and improved parent engagement in schools.  It has brought teachers and families closer together and created opportunities for better communications between home and school.

We are excited about the HPS PATH Program and look forward to meeting with you and your student! To request a home visit, please click here:

Flu Clinic

Flu Clinic

We are partnering with CVS to host a flu clinic for ages 7 and up.  Please sign up in the front office, fill out the consent forms and leave a copy of your insurance if you would like to participate.

The most common insurances CVS takes are Aetna, Caremark, United Health Care, Cigna, Medicare, Community First, and Federal BCBS.  They do not accept a few BCBS plans, Tricare, and Superior.

The vaccine costs forty dollars, but for the clinic participants without insurance, the vaccine will be twenty-five dollars.  They prefer cash payments but will accept checks also.

CVS will bring HD flu vaccines for individuals over sixty-five years old.

“We are very happy to continue to reward our staff for their dedication to excellence,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “Every year our 34,000 plus students consistently exceed state education standards. Our teacher’s hard work is recognized annually by major publications, such as US News Best High Schools, and noted children’s advocacy groups.”

In addition to a base salary increase of between $3,500 & $5,000, teachers will be awarded a stipend of $1,000 if they have between 5 and 9 years of classroom experience. Those with more than 10 years’ experience will receive $2,000. “We see this as an investment not only in our teachers but in our students as well,” Ay said.

The new salary schedule follows Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the $11.5 Billion school finance reform package. Harmony chose to target additional funding into pay & benefits for teachers and staff. These increases have been presented to the HPS Board of Directors, and will be up for approval after receiving regulations from TEA.
