Good day, Harmony Family!

This email is to inform you that all teachers will be updating their zoom links over the weekend.  If your child is having difficulty logging into their classes, especially on Monday, please have your student be sure to log into their zoom classes by going through Schoology.  They may need to click update found on the left, when in Schoology, in their course.  If this does not resolve the problem, please email the teacher.

Again, Students must use Schoology to access the new zoom links on Monday.

Thank you,

¡Buen día, familia Harmony!

Este correo electrónico es para informarle que todos los maestros actualizarán sus enlaces de zoom durante el fin de semana. Si su hijo tiene dificultades para iniciar sesión en sus clases, especialmente el lunes, pídale a su hijo asegúrese de iniciar sesión en sus clases de zoom pasando por Schoology . Es posible que necesiten hacer clic en actualizar que se encuentra a la izquierda, cuando estén en Schoology, en su curso. Si esto no resuelve el problema, envíe un correo electrónico al maestro.

Otra vez, Los estudiantes deben usar Schoology para acceder a los nuevos enlaces de zoom el lunes .

We're Hiring

Harmony Public Schools is recruiting talented, compassionate bilingual teachers dedicated to helping every student succeed. Harmony offers a competitive salary, excellent benefits and a commitment to excellence in the classroom.

Interested applicants may apply online by clicking here.

Teachers and other staff members of Harmony Public Schools will receive a major upgrade to their employer-paid benefits package after the Harmony Public Schools Executive Board unanimously approved a sweeping new benefits expansion.

 

The package will go into effect later this spring with the start of Harmony’s annual benefits enrollment period, and includes new employer-paid benefits related to health care, retirement, and life insurance.

 

“The past year, the world has seen the true value of our teachers and team members in a way they never have before,” Harmony Public Schools CEO Fatih Ay said. “These professionals who take such good care of our students deserve to know that they are being taken care of, as well – both their immediate needs and their long-term needs. So we are excited to be able to offer them an additional set of benefits that saves them money on their health care costs each month, while also helping them prepare for their retirement down the road.”

 

The new benefits include:

 

MATCHING RETIREMENT CONTRIBUTIONS: Exempt employees can receive 100% matching contribution to employee 403(b) and/or 457(b) plan, up to $1,500 annually depending on tenure of service. This is in addition to employee’s TRS Retirement System Benefits.

 

  • Previously: No employer matching contribution. 

 

FREE VISION: Free vision care for employees.

 

  • Previously: Employee-paid supplemental benefit.

 

FREE DENTAL: Free dental care for employees. 

  • Previously: Employee-paid supplemental benefit.

INCREASED FREE LIFE INSURANCE POLICY: Free $100,000 life insurance policy for all Exempt employees.

 

  • Previously: Free $20,000 life insurance policy.

 

The package amounts to a roughly $2.4 million estimated increase in annual expenditure on employer-paid benefits for the Texas-based school system. However, Harmony Public Schools CEO Fatih Ay said the investment was worth it because of the positive impact on employee quality of life, work-life balance, and workplace satisfaction.

 

“The investments with the best returns are always the investment made in people,” Ay said. “We’ll continue to make these kinds of investments on behalf of our employees as often as we can.” 

 

The expansion was the fourth major announcement related to employee benefits made by Harmony in the past year. The school system also announced two employee bonuses last year, as well as a promise to continue independently offering the now-expired federal COVID-19 leave benefits for impacted employees.

 

For a full list of Harmony Public Schools employer-paid and supplemental benefits, please visit https://www.harmonytx.org/benefits.
