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 promotes a child-centered and strength-based public education system in which families, communities and schools are valued and empowered to help every student succeed. HE‘E works to bring diverse stakeholders together to harness collective energy, share resources, and identify opportunities for progressive action in education.

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.

The HIDOE Civil Rights Compliance Office (CRCO) is seeking input on rules governing HIDOE civil rights investigations. Please join us for the opportunity to provide feedback!

One of CRCO’s primary functions is to ensure the safety of DOE students from conduct based on their protected class status (such as gender, race, or disability, among others). Over the summer and fall, the HIDOE will be updating the administrative rules that govern the processes relating to this type of conduct. This will include revisions to Chapter 41 (Civil Rights Policy and Complaint Procedure) and Chapter 19

(Student Misconduct and Discipline, School Searches and Seizures, Reporting Offenses, Police Interviews and Arrests, and Restitution for Vandalism)

Having just finalized their proposed changes to the administrative rules, HIDOE thinks it is important to get feedback on them from the community before they submit them to first the HIDOE Board of Education, and then the Hawaii Governor for their consideration. We would like to invite you for a small group discussion regarding this issue.

Input we receive will be presented to the Superintendent for her consideration and potentially incorporated into the proposed administrative rules.
