Your voice — supporting student success
HSSC meetingYour input has been crucial as our our leadership teams come together to reflect on lessons learned over the past four years, and the opportunities that lie ahead in our Strategic Plan update.

View the listening tour slides we shared at the last BOE meeting to learn more about emerging themes from our community outreach in the spring. From "whole child" education with relevant, hands-on, and rigorous learning, to collaborating with charter schools to learn from their innovations and strengths — stay tuned for the full community input report in mid-August!

As we revisit our strategies and approaches, we want to learn from, support and expand the bright spots that many of you are creating. We're inspired by how people are coming together in creative, innovative ways around our students, and want to make sure all students — especially our most vulnerable ones — are benefiting from these types of collaborations to prepare them for life after school. (Pictured: Student leaders from the annual Hawaii State Student Council leadership conference on June 25-27 were enthusiastic participants in our #HIQualityEd photo booth.)

The strategies, resources, and innovations that best support student success: This is the focus of our Strategic Plan conversations at two upcoming events:
  • Governor Ige's Hawaii Education Summit on July 9: We're doing a breakout session on the Strategic Plan at this special conference, which is open to registered members of the public (register here), and look for the #HIQualityEd photo booth there;
  • The annual HIDOE Educational Leadership Institute on July 15, the annual gathering of school, district and state educational leaders.
We look forward to continuing the conversation with you!
