Abstract

While there are highly successful online schools on Oahu, in Hawai`i, none are specifically designed to support children with special needs, at-risk youth with emotional disturbances, and young adults who are Gifted and Talented in a nonschool (out-of-school) hours format. A hybrid online/onsite charter school has been designed with face-to-face evening and weekend sessions to support this population in their diverse needs. Stimulating parent involvement will be “key” to role modeling to their children the value of being informed, culturally sensitive 21st century citizens. Tragically, in two major geographic areas on the island where poverty is a grim reality for homeless families, parents are much less educated to understand what is available for their children and why it is important that education becomes a family value. Programs at this charter school will emphasize symbiotic strategies to pass down to future generations: “Watch. Learn. Do. Reflect. Share. Always Teach Another”.
