This month’s Kīhei Community Association (KCA) meeting on April 19 at Kīhei Charter Middle School will explore various aspects of schools and education in South Maui, including the effect of planned development mauka of the highway in North Kīhei.
Many questions arise with the appointment of the new board and the increase in growth of South Maui.
“Where will these new residents send their keiki to school?” asked KCA Vice President Mike Moran. “Are officials looking at the overall effect on our community, or only the effect of a single project as an independent entity? How do parents, teachers, community leaders, and students view the situation? Will the Department of Education ever build their Kīhei High School? Will the current elementary schools receive needed improvements and updates? What portion of funding trickles down to Kīhei from Honolulu?”
Come to the meeting and help voice and address these community concerns. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the meeting begins promptly at 6:30.
And in these difficult financial times, KCA members and other attendees are encourage to bring donations of non-perishable food items to the meeting.
Kīhei Charter Middle School is located at 41 East Līpoa in Kīhei.
