Request for Illegal Tire Dump Information

Dear Abandoned Tire Task Force Participants,

Several of you have previously mentioned the existence of tire piles in your community. We hear the piles are mostly small quantities (e.g., less than 10).

We are constantly trying to confirm the extent of the tire problem. So if you have any documentation to show the existence of these “hot spots,” such as photos, or receipts from tire processors showing the quantity of tires from a recent cleanup event, please share it with me, or bring it to next Thursday’s(May 30) meeting.

All the best,

Plans to construct a halau wa`a (canoe storage facility) at Wai`anae Boat Harbor were discussed on 5/14/13. In attendance were E Ala voyaging canoe captains Sam Kapoi and Kaina Holomalia, as well as representatives from The Wai`anae Hawaiian Civic Club, the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Leeward Community College (LCC), Kamehameha Schools (KS), Ka`ala Farm, Wai`anae Boat Fishing Club (WBFC), the State Legislature, DIBS Hawaii, First Hawaiian Construction (FHC), Koa Architects, Mr. Solar Hawaii, R. Furomoto & Associates, and Hawai`i Nautical.

The Legislature appropriated $500,000 to construct the halau, and DLNR hopes to complete the project in about one year. The Wai`anae Hawaiian Civic Club (WHCC) organized the building of the E Ala, an ancient Hawaiian style double-hull canoe, in 1981. WHCC hopes the E Ala can soon be returned to the Wai`anae Boat Harbor after a long hiatus, to once again be used to teach navigation, canoe-building, marine science, and other skills.

Dawn Clarke of Kalena’s Kitchen catered a delicious lunch for the meeting, featuring organic greens from Kahumana Farm and “Wai`anae Gold” kiawe bean flour desserts. Wai`anae Boat Fishing Club co-presidents Norman & Bonita Swift provided the tables, chairs, coffee, utensils, sign-in sheet, bottled water, set-up, clean-up, and other hospitality.

Mahalo nui loa to Keoni Ford of DIBS Hawaii, Doug Ewalt of Hawaii NauticalHawai`i Maoli, Polynesian Voyaging Society, and many others who have provided financial and in-kind support for the E Ala.  More support is needed.  Tax deductible contributions for the E Ala can be made through: Wai`anae Hawaiian Civic Club, P. O. Box 687, Wai`anae, HI  96792.

U.S. DOE Approves Hawaii’s New School Accountability and Improvement System – Webinar on 5/28/13, 9-10AM

NEWS RELEASE

Monday, May 20, 2013 8:00 AM

U.S. DOE approves Hawaii’s new school accountability and improvement system
Strive HI Performance System replaces components of federal NCLB requirements

HONOLULU – The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is pleased to announce it has received federal approval today for a new Strive HI Performance System designed to ensure all students graduate college- and career-ready. The redesigned school accountability and improvement system approved by the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) replaces many of the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) with multiple measures of success to meet the needs of Hawaii’s students, educators and schools.

“Approval to move forward with the Strive HI Performance System validates our strategic direction and allows us to build on Hawaii’s successes,” stated Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi. “With the new system, we are more focused on college- and career-readiness, rewarding high-performing schools and customizing support to students, educators and schools with strategies proven in the Zones of School Innovation.”

After winning a Race to the Top grant in 2010, HIDOE established two Zones of School Innovation (ZSI) that targeted support for struggling schools in rural or remote, hard-to-staff areas serving the largest population of native Hawaiian and economically-disadvantaged students in the state.

The Strive HI Performance System is a culmination of work by Hawaii educators, parents, community groups, and higher education. It replaces NCLB’s most ineffective and outdated components with meaningful benchmarks aligned with goals of the HIDOE/Board of Education State Strategic Plan:

The Strive HI Performance System not only reflects the State Strategic Plan, it aligns and connects with state education policies and initiatives including Common Core State Standards, updated assessments, more rigorous diploma and graduation requirements, successful school improvement strategies in the ZSI and robust teacher and principal evaluation and support systems.

“We are proud of the work happening at every level of Hawaii’s public education system to prepare students for real-world demands and provide better data, tools and support to students, educators and schools,” Deputy Superintendent Ronn Nozoe noted. “Now, with the approval of the Strive HI Performance System, we’ve unlocked the potential of all these efforts to work together in a coherent way to support success.”

HIDOE will host a webinar on May 28, 2013 to provide more information about the new system.

HIDOE will work closely with Complex Area Superintendents and principals this summer to ensure school leaders and educators are positioned for successful implementation of the Strive HI Performance System in the coming school year.

Remington College (Honolulu) Offers Scholarships

Hello Ms Shimabukuro,

I work on behalf of Remington College. I came across the site you have for the 21st district and also noticed that you’re involved with the education committee. Remington College isn’t in your district but has helped some people in your district advance their education. The school is a non-profit college with the goal of giving students the skills they need to build a better career. They recently began offering two scholarships to help make college more affordable to their students. Since you’re involved with education I was wondering if you’d be able to include Remington College or their scholarships on your website to further help those in the area learn about their educational opportunities. You can find some information about the school here:

http://www.remingtoncollege.edu/honolulu-hawaii-colleges-career-schools/

Here is information on the scholarships offered:

http://www.remingtoncollege.edu/scholarships/hawaii/

Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is any other information I can provide to help. Thank you for your time and consideration with this.
