Community Engagement


Aloha! This page provides information to stakeholders about our schoolʻs finances and operations for School Year 2020-2021 via our Academic Plan and Comprehensive Financial Plan. Our School Community Council (SCC), made up of principals, teachers, staff, students, parents, and volunteer community members helps to craft and approve these plans for the following school year. An election is held annually to set membership on the SCC. If you are interested in joining our SCC please contact our Principal Spencer. Learn more about our School Community Council on the Hawaii DOE website.
