The primary focus of the Harlan Independent School District is to provide our school community and specifically school aged students with high-quality educational experiences.  

The District Mission and Vision Statements are deeply rooted in the fundamental principles that the developmental needs of students are critically connected to a healthy, vibrant school experience.

We remain focused on achieving that mission through in-person learning for our students. After 18 months of adjusting to different learning models, our district has grown stronger in remarkable ways. However, we have learned there is no substitute equal to in-person learning for schools and families. The dynamics of personal, face-to-face interactions inside classrooms, hallways, cafeterias, and extra-curricular events cannot be ignored.

After nearly 4 weeks of successfully holding in-person learning, the Harlan Independent Board of Education has endorsed our School Operations Plan that will allow us to continue to operate under the current parameters of required masking for studentsstaff, and visitors while inside school buildings. 

We will monitor local and school conditions on an on-going basis and make necessary adjustments as needed. At this time, the Harlan Independent School District has a total of 7 positives student cases, which is less than 1% of the student population.
