Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Visitation - February 21, 2017

The Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) in collaboration with Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) began a five-year plan to accredit all public elementary schools here in the islands. This accreditation process focuses on student achievement and a culture of continuous improvement at the school site.

Kapolei Elementary School (KES) will embark on this journey. A WASC visiting team will initiate this process on February 21, 2017 with a site visit to our campus. At the conclusion of the visit, KES will start a 2-year self-study for school improvement with a focus on student achievement. This process will assist KES with an in-depth look at what currently exists and what needs to be improved.

Our goal is to celebrate accomplishments our students strive for in their learning. We also want to bring clarity as to how we at KES can encourage our students to strive for academic achievement using the General Learner Outcomes (GLO’s) to ensure they are lifelong learners.
