In preparation for the upcoming 2017 federal and state legislative sessions, NHEC reconvened Native Hawaiian education stakeholders and advocates for its second Native Hawaiian Legislative Summit on September 22, 2016 at the University of Hawai’i-West O’ahu. For this Summit, NHEC invited State and Federal advocates and policy makers to share current priorities, particularly those related to the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act, and to hear concerns and priorities from constituents in attendance. Following the panel sessions, Summit participants conducted table top discussion on the presented State and Federal policy priorities, the Hawai’i Department of Education’s Nā Hopena A’o community readiness and student success indicators, and a SWOT analysis on learning systems in Hawai’i. Provided below is the post-convening report for the Summit and other related materials.
