Graduation 2017

UPDATES – WEEK OF MAY 29th

GOAL 1:   STUDENT SUCCESS: 

SCHOOL YEAR  2016-17:

Congratulations on a successful school year!  Diane, Jean, Tommy and I want to express our deepest appreciation for your efforts, support and commendation for a job well done.  Our Hui/ Academy teams and support staff continued to demonstrate that level of commitment and resolve for meaningful student success.   Clearly, students’ success is only possible through quality pedagogy balanced with a solid support system.

As a school, we continue to make significant progress and it’s a privilege to be a part of this team.  As you reflect on our structure & system, quality of our staff, student achievement, scope of our educational programs,  extracurricular activities,  and student support process….clearly can see why Kapaa High has become a model school.

Thanks and looking forward to SY 2017-18.  Best wishes for a relaxing summer break!

GOAL 2:   STAFF SUCCESS:

Final Mark Posting on Infinite Campus:

Reminder that grades are due Tuesday, May 30th at 3:00 p.m. and Registrar Todd Barcial will need to sign your check out folder when done.  Be sure to turn in your printed grade book/attendance or hard cover attendance book/grade book to the front office.   Reminder that administration will intervene for any student who receives a failing grade with no evidence of student support documentation.   

Goal 3: SYSTEM SUCCESS:

SY 2017-18 Master Schedule (draft):

Teaching lines for next school year reflects work in progress.  As shared this past Friday, several teaching sections have yet to be finalized due to enrollment counts, Early College funding, final year-end grades, etc.  In supporting those teachers whose classrooms are being renovated, administration will need to create a prep period schedule where other classrooms are available for them to teach.

AUTHENTIC LITERACY:  Adolescents entering the adult world in the 21st century will need to read and write more than at any other time in human history.  They will need advanced levels of literacy to perform their jobs, run their households, act as citizens, and conduct their personal lives.   Richard Vacca
