Ho'oku'i III: Na Kumu Alaka'i

Project Hookui III: Na Kumu Alakai supports Native Hawaiian and at-risk students transition from high school to postsecondary (college) education. The project goal is to create a sustainable program by providing professional development training to Hawai‘i Department of Education school faculty in the Hookui Model’s array of supports. The project is on all six islands, and in select Hawai‘i Department of Education high schools and charter schools.

The goal of Project Hookui III: Na Kumu Alakai (Award# S362A180010) is the formalization of Project Hookui I and II, which successfully supported over 1,000 Native Hawaiian students, students with disabilities, and other at-risk students, towards postsecondary transition at 28 high schools. The formalization includes working collaboratively with the Hawai‘i Department of Education faculty and staff by training them on the essential skills and elements that made Hookui I and Hookui II successful.

Project Dates: September 17, 2018 through September 2021
