Extracurricular programming to resume Aug. 19 at HIDOE schools

Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) extracurricular and co-curricular activities are scheduled to begin in person on Aug. 19. All programming will be required to adhere to state and county declarations and follow health and safety protocols in the Department’s Return to Learn plan. The date is subject to change as HIDOE continues to monitor the situation and guidance issued by health and government officials.

The start date aligns with the Department's directive to schools to focus the first two weeks of the new school year on three priorities: assessing student learning needs; testing and adjusting school safety protocols; and conducting employee training and preparing for classroom and virtual instruction.

“We recognize the importance of extracurricular activities when it comes to the overall educational experience of our students. Given the current global health crisis, we are taking steps to ensure the safety of our students and staff while trying to balance a whole-child approach to learning that these programs provide,” Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto said. “We will continue to work closely with medical and health officials to evaluate our processes and procedures as this pandemic evolves.”

Extracurricular and co-curricular activities include, but are not limited to, athletics, band, academic competitions and clubs. Specific examples include:

  • Fall sports: football, cheerleading, cross country, air rifle, girls volleyball, and bowling

  • Speech and debate team in-person meetings

  • Marching band practice

  • Drama club rehearsals

  • Staff professional development

School Year 2020-21 Models

Individual school models were announced July 8. Schools selected their instructional models and are working on finalizing implementation plans. These include new processes and procedures for ensuring proper social distancing, and supporting students and families with distance-learning models. Implementation plans will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

Each school model adopted must:

  • Ensure 180 days of instruction;

  • Prioritize kindergarten through grade 2 and pre-kindergarten students for face-to-face learning on campus, as applicable;

  • Prioritize vulnerable students including, but not limited to, children with disabilities, English learners, and economically disadvantaged students, for face-to-face or online learning, as appropriate, on campus;

  • Allow for student support services to be provided;

  • Ensure compliance with social distancing and health and sanitation guidelines from state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and

  • Abide by the current collective bargaining agreements between the labor unions and HIDOE.

Elementary Models

    • Face-to-Face Learning: All students on campus daily (full-time) for face-to-face instruction.
    • Blended Rotation: One group of students to be present on campus receiving face-to-face instruction while the other group(s) participates in distance learning.
    • Hybrid (Face-to-Face and Blended Rotation): Lower elementary and vulnerable students will have face-to-face instruction daily (full-time), while upper elementary students will have a Blended Rotation model.
  • Middle School Models
    • Face-to-Face Learning: All students on campus daily (full-time) for face-to-face instruction.
    • A/B Two-Day Rotation Learning: Face-to-face learning with online instruction that includes synchronous (occurring at the same, assigned times) and asynchronous (online tasks outside of scheduled class times may be completed at different times) learning along with projects and choice boards. Students report to school twice a week. Priority will be given to vulnerable students for daily face-to-face instruction to the greatest extent possible. 
    • Combination Rotation Learning: This model is similar to the Two-Day Rotation Model. Schools determine the number of days in which students report to campus for face-to-face learning, such as once per week or five days over three weeks, depending on the school context. Priority will be given to vulnerable students for daily face-to-face instruction to the greatest extent possible. 
  • High School Models
    • Face-to-Face Learning: All students on campus daily (full-time) for face-to-face instruction.
    • A/B Two-Day Rotation Learning: Blended learning strategies will be implemented to deliver lessons to students, Group A and B. One group of students to be present on campus receiving face-to-face instruction while the other group participates in distance learning, rotating twice a week. Principal will have the flexibility to determine the rotational schedule. Possible rotations include, but are not limited to, alphabetical order, grade level, or academies. Priority will be given to vulnerable students for daily face-to-face instruction to the greatest extent possible. 
    • Hybrid (Face-to-Face and Blended Rotation): Blended learning strategies will be implemented to deliver lessons for the other students. Group(s) of students to be present on campus receiving face-to-face instruction while the other group(s) participates in distance learning, on a rotational basis. Most vulnerable students on campus daily for face-to-face instruction.

The approved school models provide for online and blended distance learning to support social distancing while ensuring academic learning continues in whatever environment students may be provided. All schools are preparing for the possibility of future school closures by increasing device accessibility to students, building teacher capacity for virtual engagement with their students, and course offerings for credits towards graduation. While in-school, face-to-face instruction is preferred, there may be situations in which parents may choose virtual learning only. The Department's E-School stands ready to offer courses for grades 6-12. The Department is in the process of looking at a K-5 virtual solution. Working with their home school, once a parent selects a virtual-only option, the parent commits to this selection for the entire length specified in order to earn the credit or grade.

    NEWS RELEASE

    NATIONAL FEDERATION OF STATE

    HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS

    Rules Changes Approved for High School

    Track and Field, Cross Country

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Contact: Becky Oakes

    INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 7, 2015) – Beginning with the 2016 high school track
    and field season, the head starter (or designee), rather than the implement
    inspector, shall inspect all starting blocks used in the running events.

    The addition of Article 4 to Rule 3-6 was one of eight changes recommended
    by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track
    and Field Rules Committee at its June 15-17 meeting in Indianapolis. The
    committee’s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

    “The committee did significant work in cleaning up some confusion regarding
    trials and passes by expanding terms contained in definitions,” said Becky
    Oakes, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Track and Field Rules
    Committee. “Likewise, changes were made to include the use of flags in field
    events and update cross country rules to reflect the current trends in the sport.”

    Rules 6-1-1 through 5 were amended to expand and clarify the definitions
    for trials/attempts in throwing events. Rule 6-2-9 concerning a competitor’s
    initiation of a trial was consequently affected by the change. Similar
    revisions were made to Rules 7-1-1 through 7 and Rule 7-2-12 so the same
    clarification and expansion of definitions apply.

    Other significant track and field rules changes included the revision of
    Rule 3-10-7. The rule now states that “the head event judge may be equipped
    with both a white and red flag” to signal whether a throwing attempt is fair
    or foul. The change will allow for more efficient administration of field
    events and for improved communication between officials, coaches and fans, Oakes said.

    In cross country, Rule 9-3-3 was revised to recommend the use of a video or
    photograph to verify the order of finish in races in which the timing system
    indicates a differential of one-tenth of a second or less. Having the video
    as a back-up and a process in place for problems that may arise from the use
    of a computerized transponder/chip system is a good solution, Oakes said.

    Added to Rule 9-3 is the recommendation of a finish corral at cross country
    meets where transponders are used for the order of finish.

    Other changes to cross country included an addition to Rule 9-1-3, which
    now allows the use of double painted boundary lines and/or natural or
    artificial boundary markers as an alternative method to mark the course for
    both runners and spectators.

    The remaining changes to track and field concern equipment standards. Rule
    6-5-2 was added, specifying the maximum allowed diameter for indoor shot put
    to account for the synthetic cover that is not present on the outdoor
    implement. Rule 6-6-1 was revised to allow for the use of newer javelin
    materials such as carbon fiber. Finally, Rule 7-6-3 was altered to recommend
    that the takeoff board for long jump and triple jump be eight inches wide,
    but still allow for larger boards.

    Track and field is the second-most popular sport for boys with 580,321
    participants in 16,271 schools and is the No. 1 sport for girls with 478,885
    participants in 16,217 schools during the 2013-14 season, according to the
    NFHS Athletics Participation Survey. Cross country is the seventh-most
    popular sport for boys with 252,547 participants in 14,473 schools and is
    the sixth-most popular sport for girls with 218,121 participants in 14,267 schools.

    This press release was written by Brandon Jones, a summer intern in the

    NFHS Publications and Communications Department and a junior at Indiana University Bloomington. 


    Prohibition of Jewelry Lifted in High School Track and Field

     

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                   Contact: Becky Oakes

    INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 14, 2014) — Effective with the 2015 high school track and field season, the prohibition of jewelry will be eliminated. This was one of several rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track and Field Rules Committee at its June 16-18 meeting in Indianapolis. The committee’s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

    Becky Oakes, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Track and Field Rules Committee, said the committee determined that prohibiting jewelry in high school track and field and cross country is not necessary.

    “The wearing of jewelry ordinarily presents little risk of injury to either the competitor or opponents,” Oakes said. “Elimination of the rule allows officials to focus on meet administration directly related to actual competition. Coaches continue to have the obligation to see that competitors are properly equipped.”

    In other changes, language regarding the time limit to initiate a trial in the throwing and jumping events was revised. Previously, competitors in these events had to initiate a trial and carry it to completion within one minute. Beginning next year, participants must only initiate the trial within the one-minute time limit. Completion of the event will be allowed beyond the prescribed time.

    Another change was made in field events involving implements. In events such as the shot put, discus, javelin and pole vault, an additional trial will be allowed when an implement breaks – and thus becomes illegal – during competition due to no fault of the competitor.

    The revised note in Rules 6-2-17 and 7-2-17reads as follows: “If a legal implement breaks during an attempt in accordance with the rules, no penalty shall be counted against the competitor and a replacement trial shall be awarded. If the implement breaks upon completion of the trial, a replacement attempt shall not be awarded and the results of the trial shall be recorded, provided it was made in accordance with the rules.”

    In the discus throw, it no longer will be a foul if a competitor is out of control when exiting the back half of the circle. Also, in the discus, shot put and javelin, the requirement for the judge to call “mark” was eliminated.

    Another change involves the high jump and pole vault events. A new article in Rule 7-2 will state that “a crossbar displaced by a force disassociated with the competitor after he/she is legally and clearly over the crossbar shall not be a fault and is considered a successful attempt.”

    In Rule 8 involving special events, the committee approved the 1,500-meter run as an alternate for the 1,600-meter run in the decathlon and pentathlon. Oakes said when using the IAAF standard scoring, the 1,500-meter run is the standard distance. In addition, the indoor weight throw was approved for the listing of special events.

    The final change involves Rule 1-4 on indoor track. Since many indoor meets are held in college facilities, the committee approved the 60-meter high hurdles and dash as alternates for the 55-meter high hurdles and dash. Oakes said this option eliminates special marking of the facilities for the hurdles and dash.

    Track and field is the second-most popular sport for boys with 580,672 participants in 16,001 schools and is the No. 1 sport for girls with 472,939 participants in 15,962 schools during the 2012-13 season, according to the NFHS Athletics Participation Survey.

    Free Online Course – The Role of the Parent in Sports – Now Available

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
    Contact: Tim Flannery

    INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 19, 2010) — A new online education course – The Role of the Parent in Sports – is now available through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) at www.nfhslearn.com.

    Similar to the Concussion in Sports – What You Need to Know online course released in May, the new parent course is being offered at no cost. Anyone can register for the free course at www.nfhslearn.com

    “Parents of students who participate in athletics make a huge difference in the quality of the sport experience for their sons and daughters,” said Tim Flannery, NFHS assistant director who directs the NFHS Coach Education Program. “Parents unintentionally spoil the educational experience of their children at times by the way they talk to them after games, behave in the stands and interact with coaches and officials. This online course provides information and resources to help parents understand their role in ensuring an educational experience for their son or daughter.” 

    The NFHS Coach Education Program was started in 2007, and more than 140,000 coaches have taken the core course — Fundamentals of Coaching. Forty-five of the 51 NFHS member associations have adopted the course.

    In addition to the core courses (Fundamentals of Coaching and NFHS First Aid for Coaches), eight sport-specific courses are available in football, basketball, soccer, softball, cheer and dance, spirit safety, wrestling and volleyball. The program also includes four elective courses and the two free courses.

    The NFHS offers coaches the ability to become Level 1 certified as an Accredited Interscholastic Coach. In addition to the Fundamentals of Coaching course, coaches must complete NFHS First Aid for Coaches, or its equivalent, and one of the sport-specific courses or Teaching Sport Skills, and then can apply for certification online.

    All NFHS coach education courses are available at www.nfhslearn.com
