Western Association of
Schools and Colleges
The ACS WASC/HIDOE partnership provides a coordinated accreditation system integral to the school improvement process for ALL Hawaii DOE Public Schools K-12. The ACS WASC/HIDOE process is directly aligned with the HIDOE State Strategic Plan and the corresponding Academic Plans of the schools. The ACS WASC/HIDOE accreditation process systematizes and standardizes the ongoing evaluation of a school program and streamlines planning and reporting. The Focus on Learning: Joint ACS WASC/HIDOE Focus on Learning Process Guide facilitates a school’s in-depth look at what currently exists and what needs to be improved in relation to student learning and the school’s program. Through the process the schools evaluate progress in addressing the six priority strategies of the Hawaii State Strategic Plan. These are: the Academic Review Team, Common Core State Standards, Educator Effectiveness Systems; Formative Instruction/Data Teams; Induction and Mentoring; and the Comprehensive Student Support System.

Annual Notification of Privacy Rights
Know your privacy rights as they apply to
1) student record information;
2) directory information;
3) surveys and other information collection; and
4) military recruitment information.
For more information on your privacy rights, the laws that protect them, and how to exercise your rights, contact your school administrator or visit the State of Hawaii Department of Education online to read more about FERPA.
Each year, Hawaii public schools are required to notify parents of their rights under the "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act." These rights are generally broken up into 4 separate sections. Here is a brief description of FERPA rights:
1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the request.
2. The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the parent, guardian, or eligible student believe are inaccurate or misleading.
3. The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.
4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
