News Release from Hawaii DoE 26-Jul-2016

​HONOLULU – The Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) and Board of Education (BOE) have scheduled a series of community meetings to provide updates on plans to better public education.  These meetings are part of the ongoing outreach effort in the updating of the Strategic Plan.

Student success is at the core of the DOE/BOE Strategic Plan, which sets targets for progress tied to three goals. Earlier this year, the DOE/BOE embarked on a review and extension of the plan.

"We have sought input from students, teachers, school leaders, parents, employers and community members and their feedback is an important component as we move forward," said Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi.  "Additionally, we are reviewing our student data, and the output of the Governor's team on the Every Student Succeeds Act. Based on the collective feedback, we will develop new strategies to support student success."

"A lot of work has been done and we want to share this information with our school communities and education stakeholders," added BOE Chairman Lance Mizumoto.  "We encourage anyone interested in public education to attend our meetings to learn about our efforts."

Staff from DOE will be collecting community members' perspectives on the draft Strategic Plan priorities, which will also be used to inform the Plan's review and extension.

The Governor's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Team is also sharing information about new opportunities under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. Hawaii's state plan for ESSA will be informed by the Strategic Plan.

The DOE has posted the upcoming BOE and Governor ESSA Team community meetings at Community-Meetings.aspx.
