Overview

The Department believes in a balanced approach of “standardization” (high expectations and high-quality foundational materials for classroom use) and “customization” (through teachers’ individual decisions and instructional practices). Instructional materials are not a script. While teachers use a consistent set of materials as a primary resource, they are still expected to be innovative and creative to address their students’ learning needs.

Schools, however, still have the ability to select alternative instructional materials, provided they align with the Hawaii Common Core. Schools opting to use materials other than those selected by the Department need to file an exception request outlining an implementation plan. The request will be reviewed by a technical committee and approved by the Complex Area Superintendent.
