Agreements:

 

1.     There will be a common set of core content standards across the three campuses for the areas of Language Arts, Speech, Math, Science, Social Studies, Languages, ōIke Hawaiōi, Christian Education, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physical Education, Health, Industrial Technology, Instructional Technology and Life Skills.

2.     Depending on its unique program, each campus may have some content standards in addition to those that are common across the campuses.

3.     Beyond the content standards, the learning benchmarks and performance standards will be set by each individual campus.

4.     Each campus will ensure alignment between its curriculum and the content standards.

5.     There will be a common approach across the campuses for assessing achievement of the standards.  However, each individual campus will decide some of the specifics and details regarding assessment.

6.     A plan will be developed to enable the work on the content standards for Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Languages to occur during the coming summer.

7.     There is a need to refine the terminology for some areas (e.g. “industrial technology”) and consider how to pull together some common areas such as language arts and speech, visual arts and performing arts, and physical education and health.

8.     On May 13 the Interim Vice President for Education, Headmasters and Senior Education Administrator will meet with the curriculum coordinators from all three campuses to discuss the standards work and their leadership role in this work.

9.     On May 15 the Interim Vice President for Education, Headmasters and Senior Education Administrator will meet with all the members of the Standards Committee to review the plan and timeline for their ongoing work.

 

NOTE: A plan and schedule for work on the Lifelong Learning Standards areas in the next phase still needs to be developed. This includes what students should know/be able to do across a variety of disciplines (e.g., decision-making techniques, critical thinking skills, time management skills, study skills, the SLE’s, etc.)
