Message from Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto:

“Our educators understand the unique needs of their students better than anyone. Through DonorsChoose, teachers are empowered to use that knowledge to obtain the necessary resources that help to turn their classroom visions into reality, while also providing them with the opportunity to strengthen their community relationships. We’re grateful for this partnership and for the generous donors who are helping our schools become stronger, so that our haumana can thrive.”

About Hawaii State Department of Education

Hawai‘i's public school system was founded on Oct. 15, 1840, by King Kamehameha III. It is the oldest public school system west of the Mississippi and one of the largest in the country – 294 unique schools on seven islands, with more than 22,000 full-time and 20,000 part-time/casual employees serving about 180,000 students, their families and the community.

Hawai‘i’s public schools are a diverse portfolio of high-quality school models aligned with local school community context, values, history and economic growth opportunities through leadership empowerment, student voice and teacher collaboration.

The mission of the Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) is to serve our community by ensuring equity, empowerment and excellence in education for all students.
