What’s in it for You? Harris County Department of Education’s New Website Launches Oct. 31
News Release
Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Harris County Department of Education launches its new website and engages you with a vibrant and responsive design, informational graphics and maps, custom photos, engaging videos, timely news features and upcoming events. The website was designed with the user in mind, helping you find information about HCDE services and programs easily through color-coded blocks labeling. 

Testimonials allow education customers to decide which services can help you, be it a teacher certification program, a Head Start preschool program for your child or information about how HCDE is funded.

“Our new website is based on user experience, designed for the public so visitors can easily find out about HCDE whether you’re a parent, student, teacher, school district, teacher or taxpayer,” said County School Superintendent James Colbert Jr. “We are about what’s in it for you.”

Other features of our site include the following:

• A vibrant color palette matched with HCDE programs and individual logos
• Mobile-friendly navigation
• Word Press platform for dependability
• Search-engine optimized and friendly
• Information-rich pages with facts at your fingertips

About Harris County Department of Education: HCDE provides special education, therapy services, early education, adult education and after-school programming. Services are funded by government grants, fees and a local property tax of less than $9 per homeowner. For every dollar in local property tax collected, HCDE provides $4.70 in services to the 25 Harris County school districts. We operate four campuses for students with profound special education needs and adjudicated or recovering youth who require a low, student-teacher ratio and highly structured environment. One-hundred percent of students served on HCDE campuses are at-risk. We are governed by an elected board of seven trustees and have 1,076 employees and 33 facilities, including 15 Head Start centers.
