Kihei District and Curriculum
All public schools, from elementary to secondary, in the Kihei area fall under the curriculum set forth by the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE). Kihei-area schools and the DOE place the utmost importance on the future of their students; to ensure that students are successful in college and beyond, the DOE has adopted six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) for schools to follow. With their focus on production, communication, and technology, the GLOs are designed to aid teachers in producing college- and career-ready students.
We currently cover the following Kihei-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kihei District Curriculum
The DOE is working to prepare students for success by switching to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The switch is expected to be fully implemented by the 2013-2014 school year, and it will bring the most changes to English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Starting in 2016, students who graduate must earn four credits in ELA (including ELA I, ELA II, and Expository Writing) and three credits in math (including one credit each in Geometry and Algebra).
English Language Arts courses will widen their focuses to include nonfiction and informational materials. Mathematics courses will seek to teach students the why behind equations, instead of just the how. The CCSS will also give students more opportunity to interact with technology. The DOE plans to shift to a more digitally-focused curriculum, which will give students the opportunity to access and present course materials and projects on digital devices.

Chalk Talk: What Is MLA?
The initialism ‘MLA’ stands for Modern Language Association. This organization was founded in 1883 with the aim of promoting and advocating for instruction in literature and languages. When a paper is written in MLA style, it follows the MLA’s conventions for formatting and citation. Because MLA style is specific, students may need to research and learn about its guidelines before they can use it comfortably. Teachers and tutors can help students with this important task; high school teachers generally require that papers be written in MLA style. Learning MLA style is especially important for students who plan to enter post-secondary education, as most university professors expect papers to be written following these style guidelines.
