Harmony Public Schools follow the following admission process according to applicable HPS admission and enrollment policies. Harmony Public Schools require applicants to submit a complete application form in order to be considered for admission. A lottery is to be conducted if the number of applicants exceeds the maximum enrollment and a waiting list is developed. As space become available, applicants will be called from the waiting list beginning with applicants with the lowest number assignment.
Harmony Schools require applicants to submit a complete application form in order to be considered for admission. For the first year of operation of a campus, application period starts on January 10th (beginning date) and ends on June 25th (closing date). For the following years, the beginning and ending dates of the application period shall be November 1st and February 10th of each year, respectively.
A lottery is to be conducted if the number of applicants exceeds the maximum enrollment. The lottery shall take place by the end of February of that school year. The lottery will be conducted via lottery selection software under the supervision of the campus principal or his/her designee and the Area Superintendent for that geographical region or his/her designee. This ensures that the winner list and the waiting list are selected randomly. Results of the lottery shall be certified by a notary public.
The lottery will be paused momentarily after the computerized lottery fills all available seats allowed by the enrollment cap. The drawing will then continue, and the randomly-selected numbers will be used to create a waiting list. As space become available, applicants will be called from the waiting list beginning with applicants with the lowest number assignment.
Returning students (students who currently attended the school and intend to return the next school year) are given priority in admission, if they notify the school of their intent to return for the next school year by the second Friday of January of each school year.
Children of the school's founders, governing board members, teachers, and staff(*) as well as siblings of returning students (who timely notify the school of their intent to return for the next school year) are exempt from lottery requirements. If there are more children of school founders, governing board members, teachers and staff and sibling applicants than spaces available, they will be entered into a separate lottery and either admitted if space allows or placed on the waiting list in the order that they are drawn.
Another separate lottery will be held for applicants who do not fall into either of the two abovementioned categories, and who submit applications prior to the deadline. These students will be admitted if there is space or will be placed on the waiting list in the order drawn.
For this policy ?sibling? shall mean a biological or legally adopted brother or sister residing in the same household as the applicant. Cousins, nieces, nephews and unrelated children sharing an address with the applicant are not siblings. Sibling enrollment is dependent on available space and does not guarantee enrollment of each listed sibling.
(*)As long as the total number of students allowed constitutes only a small percentage of the total enrollment, as permitted by federal guidance on the Charter Schools Program.
Students whose applications are submitted after the deadline are not entered into the lottery and are admitted on a first come-first serve basis if space becomes available, or placed on the waiting list in the order their application is received.
Students who have a documented history of a criminal offense, juvenile court adjudication, listed in TEC, 12.111(6), or other serious discipline problems listed under TEC, Chapter 37, Subchapter A will be excluded from enrollment as TEC, 12.111(6) authorizes a charter school to do so.
Applicants must submit a completed application form in order to be considered for admission. The application form must be signed and dated by the parent(s). The application form must include the following items:
Applicants are not required to provide transcript or other academic records until after they are offered admission.
