2019 TRANSITION CENTERS BEST PRACTICES CONFERENCE
march 28, 2019
Pomaika’i Ballrooms at Dole Cannery - Iwilei
Transition Centers in our public schools were designed to support our newly arrived military-dependent students. With over 14,000 military children, attending over 50 military impacted public schools in Hawaii, these centers are a safety net for our military children. The students are introduced to School Transition Centers to help them acclimate into their school community. The Centers conduct student orientation and campus tours for the students and their families; allowing the students to express their concerns, ask questions, familiarize themselves with school policies, services, and get to know the staff. The Transition Centers are making a difference in the lives of our military children and families. Over time, the Transition Centers have expanded their role and are providing the same safety net for all school children who have transient living circumstances. This expanded role has resulted in more schools developing Transition Centers to help their students and increasing the contribution this conference makes in supporting all of our children.
Working with the Department of Education, the K. Mark Takai Foundation and our Military partners, The Hawaii Business Roundtable helped to support the first Transition Centers Best Practices conference last year. Due to its success, this year’s Conference has been scheduled to Thursday, March 28, 2019. Click here to register!
