James Sunday, Radford High School principal, submitted testimony to the BOE that said, “Although we are expected to be ‘good soldiers’ who follow directives, we can not in good conscience move forward without expressing the concerns we continue to have in regards to reopening our schools. The depth of these concerns keep us up at night as we hold the health and safety of our individual communities in our hands.”
The Hawaii State Teachers Association is working closely with the Hawaii State Department of Education on this matter and will update members as needed.
Some teachers expressed concern over their employee ID number appearing in their email address. We contacted the Hawaii Department of Education to verify how and why employee IDs are being used.
