It aligns and connects our key state education policies and initiatives to position students and educators for success and uses data to measure progress and target resources.
Strategic Planhttp://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/VisionForSuccess/AdvancingEducation/StrategicPlanStrategic PlanThe governing document for the public education system in Hawai‘i provides a common foundation of expectations and supports for public education, centering on closing the achievement gap to ensure equity and excellence for each student. An Implementation Plan is now available for review. This joint project of the Department of Education (DOE) and Board of Education (BOE) covers the years 2017-2020.
Milestones in Transformationhttp://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/VisionForSuccess/AdvancingEducation/milestonesMilestones in TransformationIn 2010, the Hawaii State Board of Education (BOE) and the Department (DOE) embarked on an ambitious path to deliver more public school children to college, career and community readiness. Here are some of the top achievements since then, powered by the hard work of teachers, principals, support personnel and leadership, who believe that all children can reach their aspirations.
Race to the Tophttp://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/VisionForSuccess/AdvancingEducation/RaceToTheTopRace to the TopHawaii answered a challenge from the U.S. Department of Education with an ambitious plan to ensure students have access to a high-quality education that prepares them for college and career. In August 2010, Hawaii’s bold education plan was awarded a four-year, $75 million federal Race to the Top grant — one of only 12 awarded in the country. In 2014, Hawaii became the only state to complete the requirements of the grant on time.
An Expectation of Collegehttp://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/TeachingAndLearning/CollegeAndCareerReadiness/ExpectationAn Expectation of CollegeThe public school system in Hawaii is charged with preparing our students for life. Life, increasingly, requires knowledge and skill sets that can best be achieved through a post-secondary education — from 2-year job certification to doctoral programs. Our Strategic Plan directs that more students be ready for and enroll in college. This page offers an overview of initiatives and results aligned with that effort.
