Community invited to Waimea School local advisory panel meeting


Students, families and interested community members are invited to the next meeting of Waimea Middle School’s Local Advisory Panel (LAP) from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Tues., July 30, 2013 in Classroom K-4, located in the courtyard immediately behind the middle school office.

All LAP meetings are open and time is provided at the start of the meeting for students, families and other interested persons to speak. The meeting agenda is posted on the school’s website:

Chairing the meeting will be Dr. Kamana Beamer.

The meeting will begin with a brief mahalo reception to thank long-time LAP Community Representative Pete Hendricks for his years of service to the school. Then Dr. Megan McCorriston, Executive Director of Ho’okako’o Corporation — the WMS’ Local School Board — will present.

Dr. McCorriston will review HC’s Strategic Plan as well as new developments impacting Hawai’i public charter schools as a result of significant revisions to Hawai’i’s public charter school law passed by the 2012 Legislature and the state Department of Education’s new Strive-HI Performance System, which replaces the federal No Child Left Behind academic performance requirements.

The WMS LAP is comprised of representatives of all of the school’s stakeholder groups including students, family members, certificated faculty, classified staff, administrative leadership, community leaders and partners, and representatives of Ho’okako’o Corp.
