In April 2018, the Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) reviewed the Competency Based Community School Diploma Program (CBCSDP) relative to the requirements of federal laws, including the Code of Federal Regulations and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Action (WIOA). The WIOA defines a "State-recognized high school equivalent" as documenting satisfactory completion of secondary studies. HIDOE determined that the current CBCSDP does not document satisfactory completion of secondary studies, equivalent to a high school diploma. Therefore, the Community School for Adults will sunset the program on June 30, 2019. Only students who complete the General Education Diploma (GED) or High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) program will be able to receive the Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma beginning July 1, 2019. In preparation for this deadline, all CBCSDP units must be completed to ensure eligibility to receive a Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma. Adult education students are encouraged to plan for their individual needs to complete the requirements of the program. Contact your area campus administrator if you should have further questions.
