Department of Education (DOE)
The commitment to a quality education for all of Hawaii's children began more than 160 years ago, when Hawaii's great monarch, King Kamehameha III, established a statewide public school system. Since that time, we have continued the journey in pursuit of excellence and equity in education. Our standards set the course, while students, families, and community fill the sails with expectation as we voyage with the treasure of bright, young minds ready to lead the way to the future.
Gear Up Hawaii
GEAR UP, which stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, is a federal program whose mission is to significantly increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. The State of Hawai'i GEAR UP program is a consortium of partners that include the State of Hawai'i Department of Education, the University of Hawaii's ten-campus system and many community partners. Together with its partners, GEAR UP inspires hope and improves futures by increasing Hawaii students' access to and success in higher education.
Hawaii State Department of Education - Teleschool
The Teleschool Branch is part of the Hawaii Department of Education’s Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Student Support (OCISS). It is primarily responsible for the acquisition and distribution of educational video programs, creation of video programs in support of the Department of Education, duplication of videotapes, management of the DOE statewide video conferencing system, and transmission of educational video programming over cable and broadcast channels.
Hawai‘i P-20 Partnerships for Education is a statewide partnership led by the Good Beginnings Alliance, the Hawai‘i State Department of Education and the University of Hawai‘i System that is working to strengthen the education pipeline from early childhood through higher education so that all students achieve career and college success. P-20 partners share a sense of urgency about the need to improve Hawaii’s educational outcomes in an increasingly global economy. Click here for the P-20 Fact Sheet.
To succeed in today’s economy and to prepare for a dynamic and ever-changing future, Hawai‘i’s public high school students are encouraged to earn the Hawai‘i State Board of Education’s Step Up Diploma (starting with the class of 2013 and beyond). Hawaii P-20’s goal is to enroll 75 percent of incoming public school freshmen statewide to pledge to earn this diploma.
The Learning Coalition
We are a group of concerned citizens committed to working with others throughout the community to improve public education in Hawaii.
Early in 2005, Honolulu Advertiser’s Newspaper in Education (NIE) Director Jennifer Dang and Lynn Fujioka (WIT Oahu Project Manager and President/Founder of isisHawaii) began a passionate conversation to address Hawaii's need for a qualified STEM workforce in Hawaii.
