Strive HI 3.0

The ESSA plan impacts school accountability systems, but there is more to Hawaii's proposed updates to its accountability system (Strive HI) than just federal requirements. Much of it is driven by the updated Strategic Plan. In conjunction with the public comment period on the ESSA draft plan, a public comment period on the proposed Strive HI 3.0 system was also made available during the ESSA comment period. The public comment period is now closed. A draft of the proposed changes was presented to the Board on April 4, 2017.
