Civil Beat Brainstorm: School Suspensions and Student Discipline
Sep

6:00 PM18:00

Civil Beat Brainstorm: School Suspensions and Student Discipline

This discussion will focus on school suspensions and student discipline, and Civil Beat reporter Suevon Lee wants to hear from you.

About this Event

Civil Beat is trying something different. Join us for a new type of collaborative engagement event: Civil Beat Brainstorm. Instead of hosting a panel around a specific story or issue that we’ve already written about, we want you to come to us with your ideas and share your knowledge on a topic we feel deserves a stronger media spotlight.

This Civil Beat Brainstorm will focus on school suspensions and student discipline, and Civil Beat education reporter Suevon Lee wants to hear from you to gather ideas for future stories.

Maybe you’re an educator who sees a need for more mental health counseling at schools; a parent who has seen a child go through the disciplinary process; or someone who knows of a school that is a “bright spot”: trying something new in the area of restorative justice.

Help guide our reporting as we seek to answer some essential questions:

Do you feel the discipline system at your school works?

Do you see student discipline having an impact beyond the classroom?

Are you clear on what kinds of alternative education opportunities exist for disciplined kids?

What questions or concerns do you have about disciplines/suspensions at your school?

We plan to kick off the event with brief introductory remarks from ACLU Hawaii around the questions, how does Hawaii fare amid the national lens and what is the current landscape around student suspensions in the state? Then, we plan to break up those in attendance into smaller groups organized by themes, such as racial disparities, the challenges of data collection or bright spots and solutions.

Then, we will meet back as a larger group to talk over some of the things discussed in your small groups to get a broader discussion going.

We’re asking you to become a part of our journalism. The more input we receive from the community, the stronger our reporting becomes.

We hope you’ll join us on Thursday, September 26, from 6 - 7:30 p.m. at Entrepreneurs Sandbox, a co-working space in Kaka'ako.

Elixir Hawaii

Elixir Hawaii is a grassroots community of developers interested in the Elixir programming language. They seek to provide a diverse, accessible and welcoming environment which focuses on collaborative learning via talks, workshops, and events.

The programming community is small in general, but close-knit. These events give us a way to meet each other, stay in touch, and share our experiences.

Elixir Hawaii recognizes that close-knit communities can seem cliquish, and more established members can appear snobbish or arrogant protectors of their domains. They hope to actively fight against these perceptions and create a friendly space for collaboration.

HACKtheWAVE 2019

Come be a part of this year’s HACKtheWAVE hackathon, brought to you by Booz Allen Hamilton and Punahou School! This is an event to raise awareness and develop tools to help in the fight against ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Join us and other data science and design-thinking enthusiasts in tackling one of three different challenges: bibliometrics (analyzing published research results to inform research funding decisions), visualizations (creating visual imagery to communicate messages about ALS), and bioinformatics (understanding the biological data).

As part of the weekend's events, we have a brand new, design-focused track that will take place just on Saturday, September 21 from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm at Punahou School, especially for students with no prior coding experience. With help from Punahou faculty, you will design and create an interactive app prototype to solve a real problem.

This FREE 3-day event includes people like YOU who are interested in creating unique design-thinking solutions to generate new ideas to battle ALS, a degenerative and life-threatening neurological disease that currently has no cure.

HACKtheWAVE is open to the community, from professionals to students to amateur data scientists and even those who have been affected by ALS. Everyone is welcome… regardless of coding experience or knowledge of ALS. Punahou School’s Computer Science Department will be conducting the training sessions and leading the bibliometrics track to help novices learn and apply basic coding and design-thinking skills.

HI Tech Story

HI Tech Story

Introducing HITech Story Speaker Series with Special Guest Kevin Yu.

Kevin Yu attended the University of California at Berkeley's Haas School of Business and the University of Tokyo. While in Tokyo, he founded an internet-based trading company that arbitraged pricing differentials between the United States and Japan.

Mr. Yu joined PayPal Inc in 2004 to manage International Consumer Protections, and in 2006, he advocated for and led PayPal's expansion to Japan, culminating in PayPal's successful market-entry after the passage of the Electronic Money Transmission act by the Japanese Diet in 2009.

Following his lifelong passion for high-performance automobiles, Mr. Yu joined Tesla Motors in 2010 as head of Asia-Pacific to drive its entry into Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore. By 2015, the Tesla Model S was the best-selling sedan of any type - gas or electric - in Hong Kong.

Mr. Yu retired from Tesla in 2015 to focus on investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs. He strongly believes that hard work and ingenuity can overcome the most challenging problems of our time, while enhancing and not compromising our standard of living.

HITech Story is a monthly speaker series that provides the opportunity to interact with and learn from successful leaders and guest lecturers from some of Silicon Valley's top tech companies.

Each month, the HITech Story Speaker Series will provide an inclusive and interactive environment for attendees to "talk story" with high-level professionals in an intimate setting and network with the local business community. Events will include a presentation by the guest lecturer, followed by a Q&A and light pupus and refreshments.

Events for the series take place at Entrepreneurs Sandbox at 6 pm on the third Thursday of every month unless otherwise noted.

The series is always free and open to the public though RSVPs are required to save you a seat.
