Halawa District and Curriculum
Halawa-area schools, along with the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) have one important goal: to prepare students for life beyond secondary schooling, whether this includes going to college or entering the workforce. The schools uphold this goal by focusing on six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs). These GLOs aim to teach students to use technology effectively, seek future learning, communicate effectively, produce quality work, think critically, and contribute to the community.
We currently cover the following Halawa-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Halawa District Curriculum
The DOE is also instituting a new curriculum for Halawa-area schools. Instead of following the No Child Left Behind standards, schools will be switching to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. The CCSS will update instruction in two important subjects: English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. Students will no longer be expected to learn by rote. They will, instead, be expected to think critically in both areas, which means understanding the logic behind mathematical equations and analyzing in-depth a range of literary texts.
Graduation requirements will undergo a slight change under the CCSS, although the new requirements will not take effect until 2016. In mathematics, students must successfully earn one credit each of Algebra and Geometry, instead of choosing which math courses they’d like to take. In English Language Arts, students will need to earn one-half credit in Expository Writing in addition to one credit each in ELA I and ELA II.

Chalk Talk: What is Accreditation?
One way parents and students can ensure they are receiving quality education is to verify the accreditation status of their schools. Accreditation, which is available for schools from pre-kindergarten to post-secondary levels, is a process wherein schools are checked against a set of rigorous quality standards. If a school passes, it is said to be accredited. In the U.S., accreditation is not granted by the federal government; instead, private nonprofit organizations set up standards and accredit the schools which meet them. One example of these organizations is the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or CHEA. Universities who are accredited by CHEA have proven that they can meet high educational standards.
