Hawaiʻi Graduates for Hawai‘i’s Future

In 2022, the Hawaiʻi P-20 Council, composed of education, business, and community leaders, developed the statewide goal “Hawaiʻi’s Graduates for Hawaiʻi’s Future” to align the education pipeline to Hawaiʻi’s workforce needs. This session will present an overview of sector specific equity goals under Hawaiʻi Graduates for Hawaiʻi’s Future and the metrics that will track students’ progress towards those goals.
