As an important follow up to the Hawaii Education Summit held on July 9, 2016 at the Hawaii Convention Center, the Governor’s ESSA Team will be hosting neighbor island town Hall meetings to discuss opportunities for schools under the Every Student Succeeds Act, with the purpose of:
1. creating a shared vision for public education in Hawai’i,
2. learning about the opportunities provided by the new ESSA law,
3. discussing a future-focused education system for Hawai’i, and
4. collecting input, feedback, and advice for a new blueprint for public education in Hawai’i.
The Kauai Town Hall Meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School Cafeteria – 4331 Nuhou Street, Lihue, HI 96766. You can register for the meeting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/every-student-succeeds-act-ess…

All students, parents, teachers, principals, staff, community members, SCC members, and PTSA members, etc. are encouraged to attend and share their input and feedback.
