Join the conversation to grow equity, excellence and innovation in Hawai‘i’s public schools

02-May-2019

Mahalo for your interest in the 2030 Promise Plan, which will guide Hawai‘i's public school system from 2020 to 2030. We have identified five student promises to realize in every school by 2030, focusing on creative ideas and solutions. Our aim is a thriving, sustainable state grounded in the values of HĀ. Here is a step-by-step toolkit to support community groups to collectively add their input through August 1.

Overview

On April 18 at the Board of Education's General Business Meeting, Supt. Christina M. Kishimoto identified promises to our students to be achieved in every public school by 2030, organized around five themes:

HAWAI‘I

Students will be educated within a public school system that is grounded in , powers a multilingual society, and honors Hawai‘i’s local and global contribution.

— MARKERS: Nā Hopena A‘o; languages; culture; context; place-based; safety & total well-being

EQUITY

Students will experience strong relationships and supports that mitigate disempowering differences to enable them to thrive academically, socially, and civically.

MARKERS: Access; personalization; community; closing achievement gaps; quality

SCHOOL DESIGN

Students will be immersed in excellent learning environments that are thoughtfully designed around a community’s power to contribute to a thriving, sustainable Hawai‘i. Learn more.

MARKERS: Core values; curriculum; infrastructure; magnets; college & career; partners

EMPOWERMENT

Students will develop their authentic voice as contributors to equity, excellence and innovation, by providing input on what they learn, how they learn, and where they learn.

MARKERS: Engagement; civic & policy voice; educational leadership; discovery; choice

INNOVATION

Students will engage in rigorous, technology-rich, problem-solving learning that enables them to solve authentic community challenges and develop pathways to goals.

MARKERS: Applied learning; design thinking; project-based learning; creativity


These are not new ideas: They draw from extensive community outreach during our last phase of strategic planning, our policy, and our work implementing the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan. The goal with our next 10 years is to identify, What will make these promises a reality for every student in every school by 2030? What does that look like, and how do we get there? 

We are collecting this Phase I feedback through August 1. (Click to view news release.) A draft of the plan will be released about a month afterward. When approved by the Board of Education in early 2020, the 2030 Promise Plan will guide our policies, procedures, operations, planning and other activities to ensure we’re on track to deliver on our promises.

We want to hear from you!
