Our mass messaging program (School Messenger) will go completely live with automated attendance messaging on August 20th. On this same date at approximately 10:00am parents will receive a text message (see attachment) giving them the opportunity to opt into the texting portion of the School Messenger program. Please ensure your parents are aware of this opportunity because School Messenger will only send this text message once. However, if parents fail to opt in at this time they can still go to the School Messenger website (www.schoolmessenger.com) and download their app to opt in. Note: if parents choose to opt in, the actual ability for them to receive text messages won't occur until two weeks after their initial opt in date.
First Annual SCC MEETING to be held on August 13, 2018
3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
The Hawaii State Department of Education (“HIDOE”) is in the process of reviewing and revising its administrative rules that govern the work of its Civil Rights Compliance Office (“CRCO”). CRCO's primary function is to ensure the safety of HIDOE students from conduct based on their protected class status. These updates will involve changes to the Civil Rights and Complaint Procedure (Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 41).
HIDOE is seeking feedback on a preliminary draft of this revised administrative rule. There will be other feedback opportunities, including during the formal administrative rules promulgation process. Input received will be presented to the Superintendent for her consideration and potentially incorporated into the proposed revisions.
The Hawaii Island meeting details are as follows:
May 7 - Monday
County of Hawaii - Aupuni Center (101 Pauahi Street, Suite 1, Hilo 96720)
Session 1 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Session 2 5:30pm - 7:30pm
The CRCO is asking for your assistance sharing this information with parent leaders of your PTSA and SCC as well as anyone that you feel may be interested. Should you have any questions or concerns, please call Equity Specialist Ian Takashiba at
808 600-9613 or the CRCO at 586-3322.
