In an effort to reduce costs and increase public access to meeting materials, the Board of Education (BOE) will no longer be providing copies of materials for distribution. Instead, at each meeting there will be two (2) folders of materials for public review and, effective immediately, materials can be viewed online at www.hawaiiboe.net. For those unable to print, the BOE Office will make copies of such materials at a cost of $0.25 per sheet.
Persons requiring special assistance or services, such as a sign language interpreter, should call 586-3334 at least three business days before the meeting.
