Kekaha Elementary School

Kekaha is a rural plantation community that serves civilian and military families from the Barking Sands and Kekaha areas. The school was established 1888, and is set on 7.2 acres, 2 block north of the ocean on Kekaha Road. In 2001, Kekaha Sugar Plantation closed down thereby increasing the percent of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch.

The Kekaha Elementary School Community Council (KESCC) was established in 2005. Since 1997, concerted and systemic staff training in Accelerated Reading and critical thinking resulted in a significant increase in student achievement schoolwide. With the change in staff and administration in 2005, the school is now working toward reestablishing the professional learning community's (PLC) focus on learning.

The staff regularly reviews student literacy and numeracy data, and uses the data to group and regroup students according to their learning challenges. The staff recently adopted a new math program to complement its literacy program, and embarked on pacing and aligning the curriculum. The staff is now planning a renewed focus on elective content areas and project-based learning. Positive Behavior Support (PBS) efforts resulted in positive growth for students experiencing emotional and social challenges in grades K-3. The staff implemented the Be Cool and Second Step programs, offered a range of supplemental support services, and instituted an awards program recognizing academic achievement and attainment of the General Learner Outcomes.
