College, Career and Community Readiness
The Hawaii Common Core...
  
i
s a set of clear and relevant learning standards to prepare students for college, career and community success. Hawaii Common Core empowers students to think critically and apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios.
   The standards are not a script and do not tell teachers how to teach. Teachers can still incorporate hands-on learning, diverse instructional strategies and technologies that best support students.
   Assessment results will set a new achievement baseline and offer meaningful information to help educators, families and communities support student growth.
Smarter Balanced Assessments

   In school year 2014-2015, the state will have new tests. These new tests will measure student mastery of the Hawaii common Core, specially the areas of mathematics, reading, writing, listening and research.
   Smarter Balanced assessments go beyond just multiple choice questions to include writing prompts and interactive tasks that allow students to showcase their skills. sbac.portal.airast.org/practice-test
   Check out some practice test questions to experience the features of the new questions and learn more about the resource library for parents.

Surveillance Cameras on Campus
  
Over the past several months, Kapolei Middle School has experienced a rash of vandalism against school property. We reported over ten incidents of individuals coming on school property during the night and breaking our windowpanes. Over forty windowpanes have been damaged during this time period.
   As a result of this senseless act of vandalism, Kapolei Middle School will invest in surveillance cameras to improve the safety and security of our school. The intent of the use of video surveillance cameras is to deter outsiders from entering our campus for inappropriate purposes, and to deter students from inappropriate behaviors.
   The surveillance cameras will be situated in areas that are considered public places - exterior of buildings and other open areas on campus. The video tapes will be erased or written over within ten (10) calendar days of the recording unless an incident is recorded that involves the violation of law or of Chapter 8-19 rules.
   The surveillance cameras will be used for school monitoring and safety. Hopefully, the surveillance cameras will prove to be a deterrent to help prevent incidents from occurring on our campus. This senseless act of vandalism is costly to the State of Hawaii, and diminishes the beauty of our school.
   If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Bruce Naguwa, at 693-7025. Thank you very much for your support.
