Hawai'i Public Schools: Continuity of Education Resources
To support continued learning during the extended school closure period, the Department’s Office of Curriculum and Instructional Design created and launched two resources: an internal website for schools and teachers and an external website for students, parents and caregivers.
Features tips and tools to help parents navigate and support continuous learning for students, including resources to supplement distance learning provided by schools.
Schools and teachers (k12.hi.us email required for access)
Features resources for teachers to use for offline or online remote learning, or a combination of both. It also provides guidance for complex area support in developing distance learning plans based on classes and demographics.
At-home learning "choice boards" (Updated weekly)
Both sites include at-home learning “choice boards” by grade level for students in pre-kindergarten through high school. These enrichment activities are aligned to grade-level content areas, beginning with English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. The Department anticipates adding the following content areas: computer science, world languages, fine arts, physical education and health.
The choice boards, updated weekly by OCID content area specialists, include digital activities along with offline activities that do not require access to the internet; but parents do need internet to access the site. Sign-up to receive notifications when new choice boards are released.
The Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) is working closely with the Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) on guidance for our students, teachers, parents and staff to prepare for and prevent the possible arrival of the COVID-19 disease at school campuses.
