School Community Council (SCC)

formerly the School/Community-Based Management (SCBM)

Our SCBM Council began in 1994 and transitioned into the School Community Council in 2005. SCC is a school improvement process involving all parts of the school community (administrators, teachers, classified staff, students, parents, and community members)and empowers the school to analyze its academic standards, budget, and governance. PHKai is formally involved in this process. It's goal is to improve student achievement by bringing decision making and accountability to the school level. A copy of the SCC By-Laws can be found in the school office.


Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary was one of the few elementary schools in the state of Hawaii that was accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It was first accredited in SY 2000 for a term of 6 years. In SY 2006, 2012, and most recently in 2018, the school was once again awarded another 6 year terms of accreditation. The faculty, staff and community members go through a process that focuses on a self-study in areas of curriculum, governance and student support.


The accreditation process validates what the school is doing, highlights areas for improvement, and provides an external evaluation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. We would like to thank all those who were involved! Contact the principal for more information.


Nominations and elections are held each April. The SCC meets monthly. Agendas and minutes are posted as meetings are held. All meetings are open to everyone.
