Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,                                                                                  

Kauai High is committed to the vision of creating a culture of learning that will empower all students to graduate ready to move forward to college and careers.  To assist students with exposure to multiple course offerings in addition to the required core courses; Kauai High has a new 7 period schedule.   This provides all students additional elective choices and, for those who need it, the ability to make up a failed course the following year so as to not fall behind.  Our current computer based ‘credit recovery’  program will be severely curtailed for the 2015-16 school year; possibly moved to after school time and summer school only,  except  for seniors in the class of 2016 as the 7 period day should allow for sufficient make-up time without a computer ‘credit recovery’ course.

To keep all students safe, and to maintain an academic atmosphere at all times, we do have expectations on a daily basis for all students.  These are not new; just reminding everyone of the expectation that:

·         Approved school wear must be worn at all times, not altered in any way, not in their backpack (that does not count as having schoolwear); detentions will be given.  Refer to school wear  note on the other side.

·         Identification badges must be worn at all times clipped to the front of a student’s shirt.  Students have been reminded via daily announcements on how to get replacement badges (check with the office for clips or with the Student Activities Coordinator for replacement badges or clips); detentions will be given.

·         Shorts/ skirts must be appropriate length or students will be required to change into loaner gym shorts and will receive a detention.

·         On time to classes, tardy students will be provided consequences if more than three tardies.

·         During academic time any student out of class without a pass or, with a pass which is not being utilized for the intended purpose, will be considered truant and will receive both school level discipline and a police truancy report.

Please review these expectations with your student and we will review them at Behavior Expectation Assemblies in January 2015.

This spring students will take the new Smarter Balanced State Test (SBAC) instead of the Hawaii State Assessment (HSA).  This is the same test being taken in approximately 35 other states. Instructions on how to access practice ‘SBAC’ tests can be found on our school website in the 'Parents' section, under 'Parent Information'. Other information regarding these tests can also be found following the instructions listed above.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Anne Kane, Principal
