Strategic Plan for Standards-Based Reform. Report of Progress.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of the Superintendent.
This report summarizes the expectations, mission, guiding principles, standards, assessments, and time line for standards implementation for the state of Hawai'i. Implementation was scheduled for completion by August 2000. A technical reference matrix tracks the development of the assessment and accountability system. The completion of specific tasks for student assessment, school accountability, student accountability, accountability of other constituents, and the supports for assessment and accountability will be required. These are delineated in chart format with accompanying deadlines. The tasks needing completion for a comprehensive Student Support System, which will ensure that all students will receive intellectual, emotional, social, and physical support to meet the content and performance standards, are in a similar format with time line. The plan for modernizing Administrative Support Services reveals the transformation of previous state and district offices into three divisions--Learner, Teacher School Support; Regional Support; and Administrative Services--each with explanations of the tasks involved. Administrative goals include the design and installation of an Integrated Management Information System with an integrated customer-oriented emphasis. Finally, the tasks of School Governance, Structure, and Organizational Development are listed in the same format. Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and Web sites are given for local sources of additional information. (RKJ)
