The Kamehameha School District of Hawai'i chose DCC to develop a bold initiative for programs and facilities that would enhance connections between students of Hawai`ian ancestry and their ecocultural legacy and lands. DCC worked in partnership with the Dr. Susan Mazer of The University of California, Santa Barbara, the Kohala Center of Kamuela, Hawai`i, and a host of community elders, to forge the initiative, which is now incorporated in their Strategic Plan.
|Founded in 1887, Kamehameha Schools is a statewide educational system supported by a $6.2 billion trust, endowed by Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop. The combined 6,500 preschool through grade 12 student enrollment makes Kamehameha the largest ndependent school system in the United States. Kamehameha Schools gives preference to children of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law.
