State Public Charter School Commission accepting applications for Pre-K-only charter schools
The Hawaiʻi State Public Charter School Commission is accepting applications for Pre-K-only charter schools from organizations that have an established early learning program.
The Commission is committed to authorizing high quality public prekindergarten-only charter schools throughout the state that will contribute meaningfully to Hawaiʻi’s public early learning system.
This effort to open pre-kindergarten-only charter schools is part of Lt. Governor Sylvia Luke’s Ready Keiki initiative which is a multifaceted plan to expand access to preschool for Hawaiʻi’s 3- and 4-year-old keiki.
“Evidence shows that high-quality preschool can lay the foundation for a child’s success in school and life,” organization leaders said.
The application deadline is Sept. 15, 2023 at 12 p.m. (HST). A link to the application packet is available online.
