A Legacy in Public Education

Since 1972, the Hawaii State Student Council has been a strong voice for public school students of the State of Hawaii.
In 1972, the Council started with (7) members coming from seven school districts.

In 1973, the Council developed a revised draft of the Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.

The original meeting minutes establishing the revisions in 1973.
In 1998, the Council was expanded to twenty-five members.

In 2004, the constitution was amended to implement a 16-member council, representing each school complex area in the state.

In 2012, the Council decided to expand to a forty-two member organization in order to yield more concerns from the students and expand communication.

30 Years of Student Leadership

In 2018, the Hawaii State Student Council celebrated 30 years of hosting the state's largest leadership conference for public school student leaders.

Today, the Council represents over 180,000 public school students. It serves as the premier student-led and student coordinated leadership organization for our schools.

"ENGAGING IN THEIR WORK BY DISTRICT TEAMS AND BY COMMITTEES, THIS HIGHLY ORGANIZED LEADERSHIP COUNCIL DOCUMENTS THEIR WORK AND ENGAGES IN RESEARCH...the Council delivers with an executive leadership style that is not only admirable but serves as a model for executive leadership practice."

-Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto
