Online Learning Tools

The Department recognizes the need and supports distance and online learning opportunities for its students through online charter schools, student support programs such as HVLN Hawaii Online Courses (HVLN HOC), and partnership programs with state community colleges and universities.

HVLN Hawaii Online Courses (formerly known as E-School)

​The Department provides standards-based, online classes for students enrolled at any Hawaii public school (including charter schools) in addition to their regular classes. HVLN HOC students are guided through their courses by state-certified teachers. At any hour of the day, students can log into the class, work on assignments and projects, and then submit work to be graded. Teachers evaluate student work and send back grades and comments. Courses offered include Math, Science, English Language Arts, Social Studies, Art, Advanced Placement, Computer Science and Health.

To take an HVLN HOC course during the regular school year, students must meet with their School Site Facilitator​.
