The Hawaii State Board of Education (BOE) has scheduled a special meeting for Thursday, July 30, to take action on a number of scenarios that would give educators more time to prepare before students return to class during the pandemic.
The virtual meeting will take place the day after educators report back to campuses across the state for training and preparation. It begins at 1 p.m.
The meeting agenda published Friday afternoon lists three action items, giving teachers, parents, and students an idea of what the BOE is considering.
Hawaii State Teachers Association President Corey Rosenlee said, “We’re grateful that the Board of Education members heard educators’ testimony loud and clear. They are now looking at enacting important safeguards that we have been asking for over the last few weeks.”
Please be on the lookout for future communication about HSTA’s positions on the above items, what HSTA will be recommending to the board, and how we can take action together.
