News Release from Hawaii DoE 11-Jun-2014

HONOLULU – After a recruitment and selection process of nearly two months, the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) is announcing a new Deputy Superintendent's Principal Roundtable for the upcoming 2014-15 school year. The Roundtable is designed to engage with principals directly to improve communication, garner feedback, develop collaborative solutions to critical challenges, and identify individuals for future complex area, state and national leadership positions and opportunities.

Twenty-six individuals, including all members of the Hawaii Government Employees Association (HGEA) Unit 6 Board of Directors and 14 additional sitting principals from four major islands, representing a diverse mix of schools and principal experience, have been named to the Roundtable. See the list of SY2014-15 Roundtable members below.

"As a former principal who knows firsthand about the challenges our principals face each day, we are committed to a thoughtful process of selecting school leaders for this Roundtable," said Deputy Superintendent Ronn Nozoe. "We value their feedback and their dedication to their schools, communities as we continue to transform public education."

HGEA Executive Director Randy Perreira stated, "We are encouraged by this additional opportunity for our principals to provide feedback from the field. With this critical information, we hope to create solutions that will transition into meaningful change to positively impact the everyday work of the principals and vice principals. We look forward to working with all stakeholders to support these efforts."

The opportunity to be part of the Roundtable was first shared with DOE principals in April. The Department received nearly 40 nominations from principals, Complex Area Superintendents, and the HGEA.

Roundtable members will meet over the summer to establish priorities. All DOE principals will be informed of the work of the Roundtable and given an opportunity to give further feedback.

"I'm looking forward to helping with finding solutions for our school leaders," said Fred Murphy, principal, Mililani High School. "We hope to set priorities moving forward, and to help principals be as creative and dynamic as they can be at their institutions."
