Kapolei District and Curriculum
Kapolei-area schools and the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) are committed to giving students the tools necessary to succeed beyond high school. Whether this means entering university or the working world, the DOE and Kapolei-area schools do what it takes to prepare students for life as productive citizens. To this end, the DOE is adopting the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which are designed to update current curricula and enhance learning opportunities.
We currently cover the following Kapolei-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kapolei District Curriculum
The biggest updates to the Kapolei-area’s schools’ curriculum will occur in the areas of mathematics and English Language Arts; full implementation of these changes should occur by the 2013-2014 school year. In mathematics, schools will endeavor to inspire students to study math beyond the secondary level by focusing on the logic behind equations — instead of simply teaching students how to perform them. In English Language Arts, students will be exposed to many types of written texts, including fiction and nonfiction, and will be expected to analyze and write critically about these texts.
To augment the change to the CCSS, the DOE is also placing greater weight on digital learning. Instead of relying on print materials, the DOE will attempt to give all students access to digital materials and learning platforms. By doing so, the DOE and Kapolei-area schools not only hope to make learning more personal for students, but also to prepare them to compete in today’s increasingly technology-driven workplace.

Chalk Talk: Is Community Service Important for High School Students?
University admissions offices, especially at prestigious schools, are flooded with applications every year. One way students can make themselves stand out is by being able to include community service projects and volunteerism on applications. Students who perform service work, such as helping in a soup kitchen or organizing a charity project, are showing that they’re able to balance school and extracurricular activities, a quality that admissions officers look for. For an extra edge, students might consider volunteering in the field they wish to study. For example, students who’d like to become veterinarians can volunteer in kennels, animal shelters, or vets’ offices.
