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.

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.

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.
