After giving across-the-board pay raises to full-time teachers and campus staff earlier this school year, Harmony Public Schools will now be giving pay raises to all levels of substitute teachers.
The daily rate increase goes into effect February 14. The increase was approved unanimously by the Harmony Public Schools Board of Directors on January 29. Under the rate increase, substitute teachers will earn an extra $20-30 per day on top of the already-competitive Harmony rate.
For a teacher only working a few days per week, the increase will mean a few hundred dollars each month on top of the compensation they already earn. For certified teachers and long-term substitutes, the rate increase could mean up to $600 per month in increased pay (see chart above for rates for each position).
“Each day, substitute teachers are making a major impact on our schools by keeping our students on-track and learning when their regular teachers are unable to attend school,” Harmony CEO Fatih Ay said. “These professionals are important members of our school community, and we want to show our thanks.”
Harmony currently has substitute teaching opportunities at all of its campuses statewide.
Earlier this school year, Harmony also announced $4,000-$7,500 in additional annual compensation for teachers and other school staff.
The increase was the third occasion in the past two school years in which Harmony announced a major improvement to employee compensation and benefits.
In January 2021, Harmony announced a sweeping upgrade of its employer-paid benefits that provided free vision and dental plans to all full-time employees, introduced matching retirement plan contributions for 403(b) and (457(b) participants, and increased life insurance payouts from $20,000 to $100,000.
In Summer 2019, Harmony also announced statewide base pay increases for employees ranging from $3,500-$5,000, as well as additional stipends for teachers working in hard-to-staff subjects.
Harmony Public Schools is a Texas-born, Texas-wide public charter school system with campuses serving PreK-Grade 12 students in 23 cities across the state, including Greater Houston, DFW, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Waco, Lubbock, Odessa, Bryan, Beaumont, and the Rio Grande Valley. Harmony’s curriculum places a heavy focus on STEM skills, Character Education, project-based learning, and college readiness.
Harmony Public Schools is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year for both students and team members.

Dear HSI-Sugar Land Mustang Students & Parents/Guardians,

This is a reminder that the second installment for Senior Dues are due on January 15th, 2022 @11:59pm. If you have already paid in full for any of the packages, then you do not need to worry about paying again, unless you would like to buy an add-on (like a prom ticket or senior week). If you paid the first installment, you MUST pay the rest of the second installment.

The Bronze package is REQUIRED for all seniors to buy if not purchasing any other package. This is the package that is needed in order for your child to graduate.

For those who did not meet the first installment, the FIRST and SECOND installment will now be combined. Or, you may pay in full payment now rather than in installments.

This is also the last chance for students to decide if they would like to go to Senior Week as we need a guaranteed number of who will be attending. No additional purchases for Senior week can be made after January 15th, 2022.

The google form for the second installment is linked below, as well as the presentation slide for how to pay Senior Dues. Once you have paid through RevTrak, please upload the receipt on this google form.

Thank you!

HSI – Sugar Land Senior Committee
