We need testimony from teachers, counselors, and school librarians at DOE and public charter schools in support of SB 2488, Proposed SD1. Please take a few minutes to write and submit testimony!
This month, the Public Access Room will be on Hawaii Island (Sept. 9–13), Maui (Sept. 16–19), and Kauai (Sept. 23–25) as part of its annual outreach. Additional presentations on Oahu, Molokai, and Lanai will be scheduled for later this fall.
The proposal would provide additional funding, 80 percent to public schools and 20 percent to the University of Hawaii, through a half-percent increase in the general excise tax (GET).
