​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​HIDOE Data Book

Performance and improvement information about Hawaii's public schools, formerly known as the Superintendent's Annual Report. The data book profiles noteworthy academic events, trends and outcomes at the state and complex-area level. It includes tables, figures and narrative sections related to demographic, financial and educational performance. Also, comparisons to other states with characteristics similar to Hawaii are provided to illustrate relative progress or status on specific indicators.

Budget and Financial Reports

  • Weighted Student Formula: The Weighted Student Formula (WSF) is a fair and equitable way to distribute funds for school budgets. The amount of money given to a school is based on individual student need, not enrollment. This means that students with more needs will receive more resources. Funding follows students to whichever schools they attend, equalizing opportunities at the student level. The WSF informs the development of each school's Academic Financial Plan, which the community can help craft by joining a School Community Council.
  • Per-Pupil Expenditures: The Department began reporting Per-pupil expenditures (PPE) beginning in 2019 as part of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These state-level reports include a breakdown of program spending classified by direct school spending, complex level, state level, and the non-school level portion of spending that is expended on behalf of schools. 
  • Allocation Reports: Links to databases of allocations to Department offices, districts and schools.
  • Appropriation Summary Report: The purpose of the Appropriation Summary is to support Department programs with managing their respective budgets for the current and future fiscal years. To achieve this, the budget appropriation is broken down into levels of detail below the EDN Program ID level, to include the Department of Budget & Finance (B&F) two-letter Org Code, means of financing (MOF), Office, DOE’s 5-digit Program ID, and character of expenditure.
  • Quarterly Reports: Quarterly reports generated each fiscal year for Department expenditures.
  • Annual Financial and Single Audit Report: Th​e Department's annual audit​​ provides an objective third-party examination of the presentation of the Department's financial statements for the most recent fiscal year, coordinated by the State of Hawaii's Office of the Auditor​.

In addition, activities of the DOE intended to eliminate the gap between the facility needs of schools and available resources shall be eligible for funding from the special fund.
  • Federal COVID-19 Relief Funds: CARES, GEER, ESSER

  • One Percent Threshold Assurance and Justification Forms: The Hawaii State Department of Education is posting the collected Assurance and Justification forms from schools in the state that exceed the One Percent Threshold. The forms are being posted as part of meeting the requirements found in 34 CFR 200.6(c)(3)(iv). This federal statute requires that the Hawaii State Department of Education make publicly available the information submitted by a local educational agency (LEA) justifying the need of the LEA to assess more than 1.0 percent of its students on the alternate assessment. Hawaii, as a single district state, is requesting all schools that exceed the One Percent Threshold to supply the State with justification for Hawaii State Assessment- Alternate student identification overage. In addition, the State form requests identified schools to submit assurances that the State's criteria for alternate test participation are being used by IEP teams to determine alternate test eligibility. All posted Assurance and Justification forms have been redacted to safeguard individual student identity.
