Harmony Public Schools Re-Enrollment for 2020-2021 is January 6-24

Re-Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year for Harmony families begins soon.

During this time of year each January, we ask families to complete a simple, online Re-Enrollment process, letting us know they’ll be joining us for another great year of learning and fun next school year, which starts in August 2020.

This simple step allows us to make sure each current student’s spot at Harmony is reserved for the following school year, and assess how many new student seats we have available for other applicants.

Re-Enrollment at Harmony Public Schools runs January 6-24, 2020. Look for more details in your email inbox, via Skyward, or on our Facebook page soon. 

In the meantime, check out these 6 things families need to know about Re-Enrollment at Harmony Public Schools.

#1

What is the difference between Re-Enrollment and Open Enrollment?

Re-enrollment is intended for current Harmony students planning to stay at their current campus the following school year. Open Enrollment is for new students, or current students who wish to change Harmony campuses (ex. moving from elementary to middle school, transferring to a campus closer to home).

#2

When is Re-Enrollment season?

For the 2020-2021 school year, re-enrollment will be January 6-24, 2020.

#3

In what form will parents need to apply for Re-Enrollment?

The preferred method for re-enrollment is through the student’s online Skyward account. (A link to Skyward can be found at the top of your campus homepage or you can simply click here.). Parents without internet and/or Skyward access may also request a paper re-enrollment option from their child’s campus.

 #4

If a student plans to stay at the same school next year, are they automatically guaranteed re-enrollment if they complete the re-enrollment process before the deadline? 

Yes, so long as their family completes the re-enrollment process.

#5

What happens if a parent does not submit their re-enrollment information before the deadline?

If a parent misses the deadline to complete the re-enrollment process, then the student will lose his/her reserved space for next school year and must apply during Open Enrollment (Nov. 1, 2019 through Feb. 10, 2020) at HarmonyTX.org/Apply.

#6

What does a Harmony parent need to do if they would like to stay with Harmony, but transfer to a different campus for the next school year?

If a parent would like to change Harmony campuses for the following school year, they must submit an application for the desired school at HarmonyTX.org/Apply.

On National STEM Day, educators across America celebrated the exciting opportunities made possible by science, technology, engineering, and math studies. Charter schools have been major contributors to making STEM education more widely available to students in every neighborhood and from every background.

One charter school network that’s leading the charge: Harmony Public Schools.

Harmony Public Schools was founded with a mission—to encourage students in underserved communities to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. There’s a well-known gap in STEM education with African American, Hispanic, and low-income students taking AP science courses and majoring in sciences in college at much lower rates than White, Asian, and wealthier students. But Harmony’s founders and educators—many of whom hold advanced degrees in science and engineering fields—knew that these disparities were about access, not ability, so they leveraged the charter school model to build a different kind of school.

Based in Houston, Harmony places a heavy emphasis on STEM through its award-winning PreK-12 curriculum and helps students gain critical job skills and hands-on experience for the future. At Harmony campuses, it’s not unusual to see 2nd graders using a 3D printer to code and print their own toys or high schoolers creating 3D-printed prosthetic limbs for families in need. The end result is remarkable—58 percent of Harmony alumni choose STEM majors in college, more than double the national and Texas averages.

By exposing students to cutting-edge technology and hands-on experiences, Harmony is leveling the playing field for underrepresented groups and giving students the support they need to find their passion. Khalid, a Harmony School of Excellence alum, credited his school with helping him to discover his love of engineering and inspiring him to positively influence his community.

In addition, teachers like Theresa Gray (who was just awarded Teacher of the Year by the Texas Charter Schools Association) are given the flexibility to offer classes on Entrepreneurship and Social Media Marketing in order to prepare students for a 21st century workforce.

This dedication to personalized learning and innovative teaching approaches has paid off. Harmony has a 98 percent graduation rate, and 100 percent of those graduating seniors are accepted to college, a feat that is made even more impressive by the fact that 64 percent of Harmony alumni are the first in their family to attend college.

Harmony Public Schools have received glowing ratings from the Texas Education Agency. In 2019, the agency awarded five out of seven Harmony networks an overall “A” rating for their academics and gave all seven networks “A” ratings for financial accountability. National media have noticed, too. This year, all 23 Harmony high schools were on U.S. News & World Report’s list of best high schools.

Harmony’s CEO, Fatih Ay, says, “A solid foundation in STEM allows our students to better understand the world around them and connects them with the future careers and opportunities that can make that world a better place. That’s why STEM is at the heart of Harmony’s academic model.” Harmony schools are proving that no student should have their horizons limited by low expectations or lack of access to world-class teaching. By inspiring students to pursue some of the most innovative work in the world, Harmony is showing students that nothing is beyond their reach.

LO QUE CREEMOS

No todos los niños son iguales. Entonces, ¿por qué debería ser cada escuela?

Las Escuelas Públicas de Harmony creen que cada estudiante puede lograr su propio potencial único y pleno a través de un entorno académico solidario y colaborativo que enfatiza el aprendizaje personalizado y los métodos de enseñanza innovadores.

QUE HACE DIFERENTE LA ARMONÍA

Educación atractiva: nuestro aprendizaje basado en proyectos involucra habilidades de pensamiento crítico y hace que el aprendizaje sea divertido con actividades prácticas que educan y entusiasman.

Habilidades para el mañana: Nuestro plan de estudios ha sido reconocido por TEA y otros por proporcionar a los estudiantes las habilidades STEM que necesitan para los trabajos demandados del futuro.

Preparado para la universidad: Harmony tiene una tasa de aceptación universitaria del 100%, y casi dos tercios de nuestros estudiantes son los primeros en sus familias en asistir a la universidad.

PREGUNTAS FRECUENTES

¿Las Escuelas Públicas de Harmony cobran matrícula para asistir?

Absolutamente no. Harmony es una escuela chárter pública gratuita de Texas. Creemos que cada estudiante merece la oportunidad de asistir a una escuela pública de alta calidad que se adapte a sus necesidades individuales, independientemente de sus ingresos.

¿Quién es elegible para asistir a las Escuelas Públicas de Harmony?

Todos los niños que residen en el límite geográfico de una escuela Harmony que cumplen con los requisitos de registro son elegibles para asistir. Sin embargo, a diferencia de la mayoría de las otras escuelas, los límites geográficos de Harmony son mucho más amplios y generalmente incluyen a toda la comunidad en la que reside la escuela, lo que significa que todos los estudiantes en el área, independientemente del nivel de ingresos del vecindario o la familia, tienen la misma oportunidad de asistir a un escuela de armonía de calidad.

¿Qué documentos necesito para solicitar?

No se necesitan documentos solo para aplicar. Sin embargo, si su hijo es seleccionado para la inscripción durante el proceso de lotería, deberá proporcionar algunos documentos básicos que verifiquen la identidad y el domicilio de su hijo.

Ya tengo un hijo en Harmony y me gustaría inscribir a su hermano por primera vez. ¿Todavía necesito solicitar?

Sí. Los hermanos de los estudiantes actuales de Harmony aún deben presentar una solicitud, pero se les da prioridad si se necesita una lotería en el campus.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Every child isn’t the same. So why should every school be?

Harmony Public Schools believes each student can achieve their own unique, full potential through a caring and collaborative academic environment that emphasizes personalized learning and innovative instructional methods.

WHAT MAKES HARMONY DIFFERENT

Engaging Education: Our project-based learning engages critical thinking skills and makes learning fun with hands-on activities that educate and excite.

Skills for Tomorrow: Our curriculum has been recognized by the TEA & others for providing students the STEM skills they need for the in-demand jobs of the future.

College Ready: Harmony has a 100% college acceptance rate, and almost two-thirds of our students are the first in their families ever to attend college.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does Harmony Public Schools charge tuition to attend?

Absolutely not. Harmony is a tuition-free, Texas public charter school. We believe every student deserves the opportunity to attend a high-quality public school that fits their individual needs regardless of income. 

Who is eligible to attend Harmony Public Schools?

All children residing in a Harmony school’s geographic boundary who meet registration requirements are eligible to attend. Unlike most other schools, though, Harmony’s geographic boundaries are much wider and generally include the entire community in which the school resides, meaning that all students in the area – regardless of neighborhood or family income level – have the same opportunity to attend a high-quality Harmony school.

What documents do I need to apply?

No documents are needed just to apply. However, if your child is selected for enrollment during the lottery process, you will need to provide a few basic documents that verify your child’s identity and home address.

I have a child in Harmony already, and would like to enroll their sibling for the first time. Do I still need to apply?

Yes. Siblings of current Harmony students still need to apply, but are given priority status if a campus lottery is needed.

In accordance with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students, Harmony Public Schools will begin taking referrals for kindergarten and newly-enrolled students in grades 1-12 for gifted and talented screening. Anyone interested in the educational welfare of these students may refer them for assessment.

Referral forms are available at the front office and on the school’s web site. Here are the links for the forms;

Parent GT Referral Form in English

Parent GT Referral Form in Spanish

The forms must be returned to the front office by Friday, September 27, 2019. G/T assessment period will take place in October.

For more information about the screening and identification process, parents may contact the school’s GT coordinator or GT coach/teacher.

 

Student Orientation

Calling all current and new returning students/parents!!!!

The orientation session will be held on August 2, 2019. 9:00am – 12:00pm & 1:30pm – 4:30pm.

See everyone there!

“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.

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.

Prior to the 2011-2012 school year, the only path to become a T-STEM Academy was a T-STEM Academy grant through the Texas Education Agency or one of the private partners in the Texas High School Project.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, a second pathway was created. Campuses, using local or other sources of funding, that are implementing the T-STEM Design Blueprint with fidelity may apply to be designated as a T-STEM Academy. T-STEM campuses are designated based on a rigorous designation process. Once a campus is designated, professional development and technical assistance are provided to designated T-STEM academies to serve as demonstration schools and learning labs to showcase innovative instruction methods which integrate technology and engineering into science and mathematics instruction. Designated T-STEM campuses serve students in grades 6-12 or 9-12.

Dear Harmony Parents,

As a school of choice, we strive to give your child the best education possible but we can’t do it without your support. Regular school attendance is an integral part of your child’s academic development and progress.  We kindly ask you for your support, by encouraging daily and punctual attendance which will help your child’s overall academic performance. Please keep in mind that any excused, unexcused absence, tardies and sign-outs causes your child to lose valuable instructional time.

 

Here are some helpful tips that can help increase a child’s daily attendance

  1. Set your morning alarm early, giving your child enough time to get ready for school.
  2. Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep at night.
  3. Schedule doctor’s appointments after school.
  4. Plan family trips during scheduled school vacations.
  5. If doctor clears your child; Student may come late after a doctor’s appointment.

 

***Please advise our campus if your child is going to be absent for the day and please turn in your excuses in a timely manner****

Please join us and help us promote daily punctual attendance!

Queridos padres de Harmony,

Como escuela de su elección, nos esforzamos por brindarle a su hijo la mejor educación posible, pero no podemos hacerlo sin su apoyo. La asistencia regular a la escuela es una parte integral del desarrollo y progreso académico de su hijo. Le pedimos amablemente su apoyo, alentando la asistencia diaria y puntual que ayudará al rendimiento académico de su hijo. Tenga en cuenta que cualquier ausencia justificada o injustificada hace que su hijo pierda valioso tiempo de instrucción.

 

Estos son algunos consejos útiles que pueden ayudar a aumentar la asistencia diaria de un niño

  1. Establezca su alarma matutina temprano, dándole a su hijo suficiente tiempo para prepararse para la escuela.
  2. Asegúrese de que su hijo duerma lo suficiente por la noche.
  3. Programar citas médicas después de la escuela.
  4. Planifique viajes familiares durante las vacaciones escolares programadas.
  5. Si el doctor da de alta a su hijo, el estudiante puede llegar tarde después de una cita con el médico.

 

*** Informe a nuestra escuela si su hijo va a estar ausente por el día y presente sus excusas de manera oportuna ****

¡Únase a nosotros y ayúdenos a promover la asistencia puntual diaria!
