Kalihi Elementary Community Engagement


Aloha! This page provides information to stakeholders about our school’s finances and operations for School Year 2017-18 via our Academic Plan and Comprehensive Financial Plan. Our School Community Council (SCC), made up of principals, teachers, staff and volunteer community members, helps to craft and approve these plans for the following school year. An election is held annually to set membership on the SCC. If you’re interested in joining our SCC, please contact the principal.
