Laupahoehoe appeals over school board elections

Special to Hawaii 24/7

On Monday, Nov. 28, Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School filed an appeal to the state Board of Education requesting it allow an amendment to its school plan regarding setting local school board elections.

The charter school’s Interim Local School Board is confident the Board of Education will make sure the charter school holds fair and legal elections. Under Board of Education rules, the appeal must be decided within 60 days.

In the meantime, Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School continues to support the work of the teachers, staff, and unions for fairness in employment, and will soon be accepting registration for incoming kindergarteners.

Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School encourages all current teachers at Laupahoehoe High and Elementary School to consider teaching at the charter school when it officially becomes a charter July 1, 2012.

The charter school is required by a government Assurances Framework to prepare in case some teachers may choose to teach elsewhere or retire.

The charter school is now accepting letters of interest and resumes from qualified State teachers for school year 2012-13.

Interested teachers may contact Loida Navalta, Administrative Consultant at or 430-8699.

For questions about the appeal, contact Interim Local School Board member Steven Strauss 969-6684.
