Principal Albert Hetrick describes where he and his staff at Aliamanu Middle School are in the School Design process.
School Design is the purposeful design of schools to ensure that every student is highly engaged in a rigorous, creative and innovative academic curriculum, in their learning environment, and in powerful applied learning practices aligned to college and careers. Each school in the Hawai‘i DOE is fashioning its unique school design reflecting the strengths and aspirations of its community, and providing more transparent ways for industries, businesses and community groups to interact with and support their public schools.
School Design is one of the student promises in the 2030 Promise Plan, the Hawai‘i DOE’s next iteration of strategic planning which will guide the public school system from 2020 to 2030. The promise is: "Students will be immersed in excellent learning environments that are thoughtfully designed around a community’s power to contribute to a thriving, sustainable Hawai‘i."
