Your Role

Parents as Partners in Learning
Parents are critical to their children’s well-being and success. Reflecting upon their own experiences, more than 2700 parents throughout Hawaii generated the following standards and practices for parents in helping their children learn. While the standards guide parents in supporting their children’s learning, they also guide the school and community in providing the information, support, and involvement opportunities that parents desire.

A. Attend to your child’s physical, emotional, social, and behavioral development:
B. Develop your family as your child’s first teacher:

E. Support your child’s school and teachers:
F. Be a life-long learner and teacher:

Services that Support Families
There are many support services available to families and the PCNC’s at every Hawaii Public high school can help you learn about them and connect to them. The fact is, there are so many options, we needed a separate page to list them all. (It’s a work in progress, please “pardon our dust”.) The Kapaa Warrior Network-Family Support Page
