Harris County Department of Education helps school districts in Harris county meet the needs of uniquely challenged learners, directly serving students at their schools or one of four HCDE-operated campuses across the county. HCDE provides its services for the 25 area school districts in Harris County at a lower cost to taxpayers than it would cost if the districts provided the services separately.
The Board of Trustees acts to establish policies governing the operation of Harris County Department of Education. As a governmental body, it can take action only by majority vote at a legally called public meeting.
