STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1323

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

                  

 

RE:    S.C.R. No. 96

 

 

 

Honorable Donna Mercado Kim

President of the Senate

Twenty-Eighth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2015

State of Hawaii

 

Madam:

 

     Your Committee on Education, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 96 entitled:

 

"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO REVIEW THE FEASIBILITY OF CONTINUING THE LAHAINALUNA HIGH SCHOOL BOARDING PROGRAM,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose and intent of this measure is to request the Department of Education to review the feasibility of continuing the Lahainaluna High School boarding program.

 

     Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Hawaii State Teachers Association.  Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Education.

 

     Your Committee finds that the Lahainaluna High School boarding program has been a cherished asset to the school and community over its long history.  Now enrolling students at about half its capacity, it is necessary to determine whether the program continues to be an apt investment of Department of Education funds.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 96 and recommends its adoption.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
