Welcome WASC Visiting Committee

Kahala Elementary has been going through a self-study called as part of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation process. A four-member committee will be visiting our campus on April 8 – 11 to corroborate the findings of our written report. Copies of our report are available for review in our library.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation is a voluntary dual-purpose process that schools (1) must be worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high-quality learning opportunities and (2) clearly demonstrate continual self-improvement.

An accredited school is focused on a mission and goals for students; it is student-oriented and examines its students' performance continuously; it accepts objective evaluation from a team of outside peer professionals trained by WASC; it maintains a qualified faculty within an effectively organized school; it collaboratively assesses the quality of its educational programs on a regular basis; and it plans for the future.

Testing For Grade 4 - February 27

Kahala Elementary School's 4th Grade has been randomly selected to complete The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessment. NAEP was first administered in 1969 and is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in subjects such as mathematics, reading, science, and writing. Standard administration practices are implemented to provide a common measure of student achievement. Teachers, principals, parents, policymakers, and researchers all use NAEP results to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States. The results of NAEP are released as The Nation’s Report Card, and are available for the nation, states, and in some cases, urban districts on their website. NAEP is a congressionally mandated project administered by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), within the U.S. Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).​

Keiki Carnival 2019!! January 25 - 2:00 PM - 5:30 PM

We are so excited about the upcoming Keiki Carnival and have been busy preparing to make it a memorable event. We have many exciting activities planned, from bounce houses and waterslides to a petting zoo and slime-making station. We will also have lots of delicious food vendors including Teapresso, Panda Express, Jersey Mikes, and Papa John's to name a few.
Packets were sent home with students in Friday folders last week. Suggested donation is $50 per family and proceeds to benefit the Kahal PTO and the American Heart Association Hawaii.
Please follow the link below to sign-up to volunteer for this event. This is our biggest and most popular event and we need each family to sign up for one one-hour volunteer time slot. This will ensure we have all the help we need and that everyone will have some time to enjoy the carnival with their families.
