Community identifies action opportunities to help achieve five promises to students

Nearly 2,800 stakeholders responded to the call for equity, excellence and innovation in public schools during the summer.  A Phase II feedback window on a first draft of the  2030 Promise Plan is open through Sept. 20, 2019.

News Release from Hawai‘i State Department of Education, Sept 5, 2019

Educators, students, parents and the broader community gathered in more than 80 feedback sessions this summer to provide ideas and action opportunities for the Hawai‘i DOE’s next strategic plan. A feedback window on the draft of that plan is open through Sept. 20, 2019.

A total of 2,782 participants provided feedback on the five student promises at the heart of the 2030 Promise Plan at 83 sessions across the Islands. Those promises — Hawai‘i, Equity, School Design, Empowerment, and Innovation — represent a shift in HIDOE’s strategic planning beyond discrete targets to include more qualitative educational outcomes and experiences.

Phase I Feedback sessions were held from May 6 to August 1, 2019, and were supported with a downloadable community feedback toolkit. 

“Our work over the summer shows that our community is ready to engage with public schools in new ways to help them realize our promises to students,” said Supt. Christina M. Kishimoto. “I look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughtful feedback on this draft.”

To participate in Phase II Feedback:

Read the first draft of the plan:

Take the survey to provide input on content and action opportunities:

Take our optional survey to provide your “stake in the ground” to help schools achieve these promises:

The main survey will give participants an opportunity to respond to community reactions to promises and rank action opportunities to provide focus going forward. The optional “stake in the ground” survey is meant to harness community energy around “change agency” — building the capacity of all schools to be innovation hubs that reflect the unique power of each community to contribute to a thriving, sustainable Hawai‘i. Participants can select from a menu of opportunities aligned to each of the promises.

“It’s gratifying that so many responded and considered new ways the school system can evolve to support the empowerment of schools, teachers and students,” said Rodney Luke, assistant superintendent of the Office of Strategy, Innovation and Performance, which is spearheading the strategic plan work. “Communities working together can achieve great things through their public schools.”

Phase II Feedback gathered through Sept. 20 will inform a final draft of the plan, which will include benchmarks and metrics in development, in late 2019.

The Board of Education will review the final plan for approval in early 2020. Implementation will begin with the 2020-2021 school year. Learn more about the 2030 Promise Plan and process:
