A High Performing Hawaii Public Charter School

Aloha KCS 'Ohana,
Due to the stay-at-home order for Hawaii residents from March 25 - April 30, students will not return to campus on Tuesday, April 7. Instead, a distance learning program will be offered to the students of Kihei Charter School from March 30 - April 30.
Our school has a long history of utilizing distance learning to prepare our students for life in the 21st century. Our team is now developing a customized virtual education program that will best serve our students and families during this challenging time. We are confident that our plan of action will have a positive impact on all our 'ohana.
Starting on Monday, March 30, we will begin offering enrichment opportunities for students, which include online activities, projects, and instructional packets. These opportunities are meant to promote continuity of learning during prolonged school closure. 
As always, we aim to keep the bar high at all times. Thus, we will do all that we can to work closely with students and families to help ensure that everyone has access to educational resources. 
School personnel will be reaching out to students and families with more details regarding these plans.
Please see the attached memo from the Office of the Superintendent for additional information. Extended Closure

Press Release

Kihei Charter School (A Maui Public Charter School) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as an Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) school - a partnership between Amazon and Edhesive to improve access to computer science education in communities currently underrepresented in the technology field.

According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, by 2020 there will be 1.4 million computer-science-related jobs available and only 400,000 computer science graduates with the skills to apply for those jobs. Many students eager to fill that gap and obtain a high paying job in technology do not have access to computer science in their high schools. Often schools want to offer these courses to their students but do not have access to curriculum and/or teacher support materials.

Amazon and Edhesive are partnering to address this gap by sponsoring teachers and administrators who demonstrate this need and are committed to bringing computer science to their school with access to content such as: Computer Science, AP Computer Science Principles, or AP Computer Science A courses. This content also includes access to support forums for both students and educators new to learning or teaching computer science,, including how students can access college scholarships and internships at Amazon.
