He'e Coalition
 

Join together to make a difference!

Hui for Excellence in Education, or “HE’E,” is a statewide coalition of diverse stakeholders committed to working collaboratively to identify opportunities to improve public education in Hawai‘i. HE‘E seeks to be the focal point for community and parent engagement while serving as a public resource for educational policy.

HE‘E was formed in May 2010 by parents and community members who stood up and said “no” to school furloughs and “yes” to re-establishing education as a public priority.

In support of Hawai‘i’s successful Race to the Top application, HE‘E will seek to coordinate parent and community engagement to further the Department of Education’s new strategic plan. More about HE‘E’s priorities…

Mahalo to those who came to the June 13, 2017 Planning Meeting and participated in a robust discussion about the School Report Card and the State’s Consolidated Plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (“ESSA”).  HEʻE submitted testimony in support of the Stateʻs Plan, which is listed here. The Board of Education voted to approve the ESSA Plan at the June 20, 2017 General Business Meeting.  Because we were focused on the School Report Card and the ESSA Plan at the June 13 Planning Meeting, we did not have time to discuss HEʻE’s website. Therefore, we would like to have a dialogue at the July 11, 2017 Planning Meeting about updating our website to reflect our work now. Please review the following websites of national advocacy organizations to see if we may get some ideas. Stand for Children, stand.org is an organization whose mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college or career training. Alliance for Excellent Education, http://all4ed.org/about/ is a group whose mission is to make every child graduate. Please contact cheri@heecoalition.org. if you can make it!
