•     The Harlingen School District’s Parental Involvement/Dropout Prevention Program is responsible for providing the community with programs that keep parents involved in their child’s education and students making education their priority. The program consists of several departments that strive to make education the key to success. The Attendance Officers monitor the district’s daily attendance, graduation rate, dropout rate, and completion rate. Parent Educators supervise parent centers on each campus, involving parents to volunteer and take interest in their children’s school. The New Directions, 9th Grade Success Initiative and New Horizons Programs are implemented at our middle schools and high schools and keep students’ interest in education a priority in life. The intake center processes district personnel student transfers as well as Experience HCISD renewals, home school paperwork, new to the District students and address verification. The Harlingen C.I.S.D Clothes Closet is a resource available for HCISD students and their families. The Family Learning Centers are located in five housing developments in Harlingen. They provide tutoring services to the residents and neighborhood children. For more information please contact Dr. Jose Luis Cavazos at (956) 427-3515 or by email jose.cavazos@hcisd.org.
