All members of the School Board work together to move the district forward while always keeping in mind what is in the best interest of the children of Harlandale. The Harlandale ISD Board of Trustees is made up of seven individuals who were elected into their positions by the community. The five men and two women meet once a month for a public meeting held at different campuses. They are also assigned to sit on specific Board and District Committees.
The strategic vision of the Harlandale Fine Arts Department is to foster educational excellence in and through the arts. This vision is carried out by the faculty and staff of the district through artistry and engagement. This vision builds on the core values of HISD and its own mission statement:
A family working together to create a high quality education where all students graduate to become productive and successful citizens for the 21st century.
Our Fine Arts Family of teachers will contribute to this mission by
(1) enhancing and strengthening students, faculty, staff, and community through increased involvement in the arts.
(2) providing for relevant and meaningful learning; and
(3) advocating for the arts and helping to create a culturally rich environment.
