Big Island Representative Caucus

This event, coordinated by Representative Cindy Evans and Mark Nakashima was a forum for Big Island organizations to share issues and concerns as we head into the 2014 Legislative Session. Charter Schools were invited to meet with the Representatives and discuss specific issues which included; equitable distribution of federal funding to Charters, facilities support for Charter Schools, and the recent change by the DOE that Charter Schools are prohibited from obtaining breakfast and lunch services from DOE School Cafeterias. The following power point was presented at the meeting by Taffi Wise of KALO.
