2016-2017 HSTA Activities Calendar


HSTA membership brings a strong collective voice to the issues affecting you.

As a member, you have the power of the collective voice of Hawaii’s public school teachers.  Through our union, we support each other, students, and our communities.

Thank you to our teacher leaders.  The success of strong chapters depends on these volunteers.  Many of HSTA’s leaders are also leaders within their communities.

Here are RA, executive board and other important dates for the 2016-2017 school year. They are subject to change.
