Kamehameha Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe will be utilizing the kōkua of one of our higher learning partners, Arizona State University, to deliver courses for the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching Program.
Aloha kākou e nā haumāna me ka ‘ohana –
I hope this message finds you all in good health and spirits.
If you have received this email – you are a student of Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe (High School) and ‘ohana that have elected to participate in the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching program for the Fall semester of the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.
As we continue with this unprecedented and challenging times, the option for students and their ‘ohana to continue their education while still being enrolled at Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe is a viable option given the on-going uncertainty that exists within our island community.
Through the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching program, Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe have solicited the kōkua of Arizona State University (ASU) in providing the high school component for our students with online learning. Students in the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching program will be enrolled in courses that are aligned to credits towards a Kamehameha Schools Diploma. With recommendation by ASU, students will be enrolled in up to six (6) high school courses with ASU.
Within the next few days, another email will be sent with a link to allow your child to select his/her courses through ASU.
Whereas, the intent is to maintain the current graduation requirements, high school administration will continue to monitor required credits subsequently up to graduation to ensure full completion of expectations.
Please note the following:
After reading the above, please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
More importantly, after reading the above, let me know by contacting our high school office if you decide this isn't the right fit and your child WILL NOT be continuing with the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching program. In which case, your child will be expected to participate in the on-campus educational program beginning August 12, 2020.
If you plan to have your child continue with the Keleaʻo Distance Learning and Teaching program, you do not need to respond to this email and a follow-up email within the next few days with course selection by your child and any up-to-date information will be shared with you.
