Please find a copy of the State of Texas 2016–17 School Report Card for Harmony School of Innovation-Austin. This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law. The report for our school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school. State law requires that the school report card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.
Estimado Padre de Familia: Adjunto a esta carta encontrará una copia del reporte de las Calificaciones Escolares del Estado de Texas 2016–17 para Harmony School of Innovation-Austin. Estas Calificaciones Escolares son requeridas por la Legislatura del Estado de Texas y preparadas por el departamento de educación estatal. Este reporte debe ser mandado a los padres o al guardián/mentor de cada estudiante inscrito en una escuela pública. Estas calificaciones proveen información concerniente al progreso académico de los estudiantes y también otra información sobre su escuela como el número de estudiantes, tamaño promedio del salón escolar, y gastos. La ley estatal requiere que la información en estas calificaciones sea diseminada. El reporte que ha recibido puede o no contener toda la información descrita en estas definiciones pues el reportaje de estos datos depende de si la escuela es una primaria, secundaria o preparatoria. La ley estatal también manda que la información sea provista a nivel del estado, del distrito escolar, y de nuestra escuela. Esta información debe ser reportada, en tanto sea posible, por grupo étnico/raza y estatus socioeconómico de los estudiantes y debe de incluir por lo menos dos años de resultados.

Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.
We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.
Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.
Thank you for your generosity.
