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…
