Wahiawa District and Curriculum
Post-secondary education and career readiness are top priorities for Wahiawa-area schools, which are overseen by the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE). The goals of Wahiawa’s schools are best expressed by their adopted General Learner Outcomes (GLOs), which are also sanctioned by the DOE. At their core, the GLOs are about creating well-rounded citizens, whether students choose to enter universities or proceed directly to the working world.
We currently cover the following Wahiawa-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wahiawa District Curriculum
Besides utilizing the GLOs, the DOE and Wahiawa-area schools are also switching to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in order to continually produce effective students and citizens. The full implementation of the CCSS will occur in the 2013-2014 school year, although some grade levels have seen the switch already. The updated curriculum will bring the most changes to the areas of mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA). In these areas, students will be expected to think critically and show a competent understanding of how equations or written works are performed or created.
To graduate from Wahiawa-area high schools, students must successfully earn 24 credit hours. The majority of these credit hours come from English, mathematics, social studies, and science courses, along with electives left to each student’s discretion. Students must also complete one-half credit hour in Personal Transition Plan work, which is designed to assist students in exploring all of their post-high school options.

Chalk Talk: What Is the ACT?
The ACT is an assessment that measures students’ readiness for post-secondary education; it is administered by an organization called ACT. Until 1996, ACT stood for American College Testing, but since 1996, the organization is officially known as ACT. The ACT test is usually taken by high school students. Some high schools require that students take the test, administering it during school hours. Other high schools don’t offer the test, but students can still sit the exam through testing sites run by ACT. Students usually choose to have their test scores sent to universities as part of their admissions materials, since the scores are accepted at all four-year universities in the U.S. Admissions officers look at students’ scores to help them decide whether to offer acceptance into a university.
