Superintendent's Message

February 12, 2018

This year’s annual Harlandale Education Foundation Scholarship Fund Drive kicked-off on Feb. 7 and will continue until Feb. 21. HEF began in 1999 and its mission is to offer its graduates financial assistance toward their goals of pursuing a higher education.  Every Harlandale ISD student who goes on to college, university or technical/trade school is eligible for a scholarship. See the “Community” tab at for more information and to make a pledge. The Harlandale Education Foundation, Inc. is an approved 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and your contribution is tax-deductible.

Pre-K applications will be accepted for the 2018-19 school year. Check with your child’s home school for the date and time of registration.

STEM Early College High School is accepting applications for incoming freshmen, current eighth grade students, interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students have the opportunity to earn up to 60 hours of college credit and an associate's degree before they even graduate high school.  Students are not required to live in the district. Visit our website to fill out the application.

Mark your calendars and join us on Feb. 22 at the annual PTA Founders Day banquet. This year’s program and dinner will be held at McCollum High School.  Tickets may be purchased at each school campus. Celebrate Texas Public Schools Week will be observed Feb. 26 through March 2.

Congratulations to Rayburn Elementary School Dual Language Teacher Evelyn Bushart for being selected the 2018 Harlandale Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Bushart will receive the KENS 5 ExCEL Award, be featured on television, and serve as the district's nominee for the Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching Award. We applaud all of our nominees for their outstanding contribution to our district. 

“The Big Fix” event that was held at Harlandale High School last month broke a record.  A total of 459 animals attended the event, making it SNIPSA’s biggest city record for the most spay/neuter surgeries performed in one day.  Thank you, Harlandale community, for being responsible pet owners.
