Employer Summary

Health Insurance
Health insurance coverage is available to TRS eligible Harmony employees. Harmony’s contribution to employee insurance premiums is determined annually by the Board of Directors. An employee may pay a group rate to add his or her spouse, children, or other eligible family members to an insurance policy.

Supplemental Insurance Benefits
In addition to the Life Insurance provided to eligible TRS employees by Harmony, employees may also at their own expense, enroll in supplemental insurance programs for Dental, Vision, Short Term and/or Longer Term Disability, Group Life, Cancer, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance benefits. Harmony will not pay premiums for these programs by payroll deduction. Employees are responsible for all premium payments for supplemental insurance benefits. Questions regarding optional supplemental benefit programs should be directed to the campus Principal.

    “As with all Texas school districts, Harmony uses the TRS ActiveCare program through the Texas Education Agency and Texas Retired Teachers...”

    They pay a decent amount towards your insurance... can’t recall the precise amount but it was over $300 /mo. 20k life insurance policy for free.

    Salary is low compared to other districts. Starting pay is ok but the yearly salary ladder is ridiculous. The only way to earn what you would earn in an ISD is to take on a lot of extra duties. Insurance is on the expensive side, but it is good.

    The worst thing is that health insurance doesn't cover dental & visual expenses.

    Best: HPS offers multiple programs to help our staff get to the next level. We have a program to assist in paying for Masters programs and certifications. We have internal leadership academies helping prepare our staff to take on new leadership roles. Harmony also provides all employees with Short Term Disability Insurance and $20,000 in life insurance at no cost to the employee. HPS also has a competitive bonus structure for staff members who meet their goals for student growth. Worst: We use TRS (same as most traditional public schools in Texas) and the plans are limited and seem very expensive. I think having the option of an HSA (health savings account) would be interesting.

    The district does provide us with some life insurance for free and pays a portion of our health insurance, based upon position. These are benefits most districts do not offer. However, the provider they use for the additional life/health insurance is not very good. It is difficult to file claims and everything is online so you have to search for things a lot of the time. The cost/benefit is low with Assurant.

    You get bonuses based on student growth. You can also earn bonuses by doing tutorials, coaching sports, etc.

    The benefits package is ok. Compared to some other ISDs I can not complain.

    If you can’t afford a pricy insurance you’re bascailly covered just so IRS DOESNT tax you.

    Best thing: Co-pay is low or none.

    The package is okay but overpriced in comparison to what other ISD schools offer their employees. The medical and dental is close to terrible when you consider it is not free.
