Distance learning survey for Hawaii DOE families

At this time we are seeking feedback from HIDOE families regarding the transition to distance learning as a result of the COVID-19 situation. The information gathered from this family survey will help HIDOE and schools to better understand the experiences and needs as related to distance learning across the state. This feedback is essential in planning for the new school year.

Parents and guardians of students enrolled at any Hawaii public or charter school are invited to complete an online survey now until June 30, 2020.

Those who complete the survey will have the opportunity to enter a prize drawing for a new iPad or Chromebook.

3/17/20 - HIDOE Statement Regarding Gov. David Ige's Announcement

Gov. David Ige announced earlier today (March 17) that all “non-essential” state government employees who can work remotely are being directed to work from home for 15 calendar days to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. However, the governor explicitly stated that his directive does not apply to the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE).

At this time, this means that all HIDOE employees are required to report to work as normal unless they feel sick, have been instructed by a health care provider to self-isolate or self-quarantine at home, or made alternative arrangements with their supervisor.
