In 2019, the Hawaii State Legislature appropriated Capital Improvement Project (CIP) monies to Hawaii 3R’s to help with the state Department of Education’s repair and maintenance backlog. The backlog runs the gamut from repairing sewer mains to replacing old and worn out rain gutters to repairing ADA ramps. Most of these projects aren’t “sexy” in the way of beautifying school campuses, but they are essential to the health and safety of students, teachers and staff. Qualified contractors from within the community are hard at work during the current pandemic shut down getting these essential projects completed.
Thank you to all of them and to our state Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) partners on all neighbor islands who are helping to coordinate this important work. Campus beautification projects with corporate volunteers will resume once it is safe to do so, and the coronavirus situation is under control.
