Harmony Public Schools honored with National Above and Beyond Award for service to our students and community by the National Alliance for Public Charter School program. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harmony Public Schools assessed the needs of students, their families, and the community, and quickly mobilized. To date Harmony Public Schools has donated more than 3,000 face shields and served 350,000 meals to children in Texas. Above and Beyond Award was earned by schools that took the extra step to serve not only their own students, but also   the broader community—during the coronavirus pandemic, despite all the challenges that came with transitioning to online learning.

“When schools nationwide transitioned to distance learning, it became clear to us that charter schools were setting a model for the rest of the nation on what it looked like to step up and care for their communities in the face of a global pandemic,” said Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. “There are many public schools that served their students well in the face of COVID-19, but the exceptional work of our Above and Beyond Award winners embodies compassion and caring for people outside their school community who also needed help. Their work is a model of servant leadership for the rest of the nation,” she added.
