Our commitment to student safety

Keeping the haumāna in our classrooms and community programs safe and secure continues to be an ever-present commitment by all of us at Kamehameha Schools. We’re dedicated to creating surroundings for our keiki that are crucial to their success in school and their overall well-being.

Communicate

We create safer spaces for our keiki when we, as a community, communicate effectively to identify and mitigate risks together

Advance

Continuous review of what, how and why we operate helps us to ensure that we are timely, efficiently and appropriately meeting the needs of our haumāna and ‘ohana

Resource

To meet the growing needs of our keiki, we are providing additional health, safety and well-being resources to support students

Engage

Engaging our KS ʻohana through on-going education and information sharing helps to build a culture of safety and well-being throughout our KS community and beyond



Assisting those in need of healing

We recognize our responsibility to provide help and healing to those who experienced harm while in our care. The Ho‘opakele Fund has been established by Kamehameha Schools to provide access to counseling for survivors of past sexual misconduct or physical abuse. A confidential hotline has been set up for those who are eligible to file a claim and access support services.
