Kailua Elementary School

Kailua Elementary School (KES) was the first school in Kailua established back in the 1880's. We are located in the heart of Kailua town on the Windward side of O'ahu between the Koolau Mountains and Kailua Bay.

We serve a diverse economic and ethnic population. Kailua is a Schoolwide Title I school in which 56% of our students participate in our free or reduced meal program. Our multi-ethnic student body includes 38% Hawaiian/part Hawaiian and 24% Caucasian students. About 9% of our students are military dependents and 11% of our school population receives special education services.

Every child is supported through the Comprehension Students Support System (CSSS). KES provides additional services for students with special needs, such as Special Education (SPED), English for Second Language (ESLL), Primary School Adjustment Project (PSAP), and counseling.

Kailua Elementary participates in a researched based behavior program called Positive Action that teaches students to take responsibility for one's own actions and behaving in a positive manner. Students are recognized for making positive choices at quarterly assemblies.

KES has a Parent Community Networking Center (PCNC) that acts as a liaison between the school, parents and community. Military family support is also offered at our school. We are currently operating under the School Community Councils established in July 2005 where administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members review and evaluate our academic and financial plans.

Kailua Elementary School CSAP (Comprehensive School Alienation Program)

Comprehensive School Alienation Program

Special Motivation Class
This alternative program is for students who have difficulty in the mainstream school environment due to academic, behavioral, social, and/or emotional problems. Students are scheduled into the CSAP program for one class period of the school day for instruction and counseling support services. CSAP eligibility is determined by Kailua High School's Screening Committee.

Off-Campus Alternative Education
Students may earn high school credits through the Employment Training Center and Hawaii Youth National Guard. These off-campus programs require students to meet specific eligibility criteria. See the CSAP Coordinator/Counselor in room F-23 for more information.

CSAP Work/study Credit
Designed to help students to stay in school, the work/study component of CSAP offers elective credit to qualifying students. One-half credit (.5) can be awarded for 60 hours of verified, paid employment.

Pregnant Teen Center
The Pregnant Teen Center provides (1) information and counseling for the general student population and (2) the Graduation-Reality And Dual-Role Skills (GRADS) curriculum for expectant girls, fathers-to-be, and parenting teen mothers and fathers. In the dual roles as students and parent, teens are encouraged to complete their high school education. The center provides educational assistance in prenatal/post natal care, labor/delivery, and parenting skills through the GRADS course. By developing academic, social, financial, community, career, and life goals, the program helps teens manage their roles and delay subsequent pregnancies.

Referral procedure: Parental/Guardian referrals and self-referrals can be made to counselors, CSAP staff, or PTC coordinator. Individualized programs meet students' needs, establish a family support system and provide links with community


Kailua Elementary School CTE (Career and Technical Education)

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are designed to address the complexity of technology and the dynamic of life and work in a complex world. Most of the courses in this section were formerly included under Vocational- Technical Education. CTE now also encompasses Guidance courses. The objectives of career development and guidance instruction are to: (1) provide students with the information, understanding, activities and skills to make choices and decisions that facilitate their personal and social growth and adjustment and (2) provide information and skills to facilitate lifetime educational and career dev elopement and planning.

CTE is a distinct but integral component of a quality education system. While all education has vocational aspects, comprehensive career and technical education programs help students develop the technical, academic, employability, and life skills needed for post-secondary education and high skill careers. CTE programs help all students to understand their technological culture, enabling them to make rational decisions about their own lives and provide a positive contribution in the increasingly technological world.


Kailua Elementary School ESLL

Students who come from homes in which languages other than English are spoken may need to develop English language skills in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Based on the Identification, Assessment, and Programming System for Students of Limited English Proficiency, we offer English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) as semester electives that may be required in addition to the students' required English courses. Increased attention to English language instruction allows the students to function more effectively in an English-based learning environment.
