Great progress is being made in Hawai‘i to drive educational success.

Hawai‘i now has new standards in early education so more children are prepared for kindergarten and on track to read at grade level by the third grade.

The Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) and University of Hawai’i System (UH) are collaborating to strengthen alignment between high school and college, so that more students make a successful transition to postsecondary education. The collaborative efforts have included reviewing and revising placement policies at UH campuses to allow students to be placed into college-level courses based on their achievements in high school, creating more dual-credit courses that allows high school students to earn both high school and college credits while in high school, and a increasing the number of other efforts designed to boost student achievement and success in higher education.
