Dear Parents and Guardians:

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides parent(s)/guardian(s) of a HIDOE student, the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher(s) and if the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so their qualifications. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s) and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner upon request.

You have the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s classroom teacher(s).

1. Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which he/she provides instruction.

2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

3. Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of their teacher certification.

 4. Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact our school office.

    Uniform Design  

Our school and community have carried on the tradition of educational excellence at our current location for over 100 years. Our new uniform design is a representation of who we are and our commitment to carry on these values. The Kapa design is comprised of three parts. The small triangle represents the child, which is the focus of our existence. The small “tent” over the child symbolizes the family that surrounds and supports the student. The larger “tent” signifies the school and community that encourages and assists the family and child as they grow and are nurtured here in this place we call King Kamehameha III Elementary School. The front of our school uniform has the school’s motto, “No Ka Pono O Na Huamana”, which means “It’s All About the Student”. It is framed with the Kapa on top which denotes the West Maui Mountains above our campus. The bottom Kapa serves as a reflection of these mountains in the waters that border our school. We appreciate your support with helping us instill pride and unity in our students. We look forward to another successful school year striving for excellence.
