Hale‘iwa Store Lots is part of the the Kamehameha Schools’ North Shore Master Plan that began in 2006 and was completed in March 2008 after significant input and consultation with the community and public agencies. In fact, more than 30 community groups, including kūpuna (elders), local farmers, business owners, community associations, schools and churches chimed in to help mold the future vision of the North Shore community.
Kamehameha Schools owns approximately 27,000 acres of land in the Waialua district. As such, our kuleana (responsibility) to care for these lands and people into perpetuity is taken seriously. The North Shore plan calls for the implementation of seven catalyst projects which address the desire to increase natural and culture resource stewardship and management; expand educational opportunities; establish alternative energy uses; enhance diversified agriculture and food production; and develop and redevelop rural commercial and rural residential areas.
Revenues generated from Hale‘iwa Store Lots contribute to funding educational opportunities for more than 47,000 learners and caregivers annually through three campuses on O‘ahu, Maui, and Hawaiʿi island; 30 preschools statewide, literacy instruction and support in more than 200 public school classrooms; financial and educational support for 17 Hawaiian-focused public charter schools; and collaborations with 50 additional organizations throughout the state.
