Help influence education at Lahainaluna High School

By Staff | Apr 23, 2021

Lahainaluna High School seeks a community representative to serve on its School Community Council (SCC).

According to the state Department of Education, “School Community Councils play a vital role in Hawaii’s education system. They are part of the leadership structure at each school and enable shared decision-making among principals, teachers, school staff, parents, students and community members to improve student achievement.”

If you love Lahainaluna, this is a great way to get involved.

Hawaii lawmakers established the councils so that various educational stakeholders could have a greater influence in public education.

The Reinventing Education Act of 2004 created School Community Councils to support school improvement and the academic achievement of students through increased community involvement.

Lahainaluna High School’s SCC is comprised of 12 members: the principal, two parent representatives, two student representatives, two Classified Staff representatives, three teacher representatives and two community representatives.

Terms are generally for two years. The current opening is for a term that will end in 2022.

For more information, contact Jeff Rogers at lhsf08@yahoo.com. Applications are due by April 30.
