WASC Corner

What's WASC?

WASC

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 is currently on our two year journey with the WASC self-study process. This self-study gives our staff a process to examine what is being implemented at our school, if what we are doing is working and what needs to be improved in relation to student learning. Upon completion of the self-study, a visiting committee will conduct a school visit to review our findings and make recommendations.
