Hawai’i P-20 Partnerships for Education and the Hawai’i P-3 Initiative

Posted on May 28, 2013 in P20 and P3 Hawaii

Hawai‘i P-20 Partnerships for Education is a statewide partnership led by the Executive Office on Early Learning, the State Department of Education, and the University of Hawai‘i System. This partnership is working to strengthen the education pipeline from early childhood through higher education so that all students achieve career and college success. Hawaii P-20’s partners share a sense of urgency about the need to improve Hawaii’s educational outcomes in an increasingly global economy, and have established a goal of 55% of Hawai‘i’s working age adults to have a 2- or 4-year college degree and for 100% of working age adults to be prepared for careers and college by the year 2025.

The Hawai‘i P-3 Initiative (Hawai‘i P-3), a program within Hawai‘i P-20, focuses on the critical, early-education component of the education pipeline. With the goal of every child reading at grade level by third grade, Hawai‘i P-3 establishes partnerships with early learning providers to promote a cohesive continuum of experiences from birth to age eight. Through the lessons learned by these partnerships, the P-3 Initiative is able to improve the alignment and integration of programs, strengthening the Hawai‘i P-20 education pipelines.
