VP for education at Kamehameha resigns

Advertiser Staff

Kamehameha Schools this week announced several administrative changes and a realignment of its executive office.

Dudley "Skip" Hare is stepping down as Kamehameha School's vice president for education.

Hare was hired in 2001 and oversaw all campuses run by the Hawaiian trust. His accomplishments include the completion of the campuses on Maui and the Big Island, initiating KS support for conversion charter schools, implementing the preschool scholarship program and, with the University of Hawai'i and the Hawai'i Association of Independent Schools, the creation of a master's degree program for leadership of independent schools.

Hare plans to return to educational consulting. He cited the realignment of the trust's education group and a need for new leadership as his reason for leaving.

Changes in the education group include the naming of Hamilton McCubbin, chief executive officer, as chancellor of the school system.

Positions for two new education deans and a vice president of communications and community relations are being created. The Board of Trustees approved the changes Jan. 14.

As chancellor and chief executive officer, McCubbin will continue to be responsible for the overall operations of Kamehameha Schools.

One of the new education deans will be responsible for the development of a virtual campus to extend Kamehameha's educational reach. The second will be responsible for further developing Kamehameha's Legacy Land Education programs that integrate education and stewardship, protection of the ecosystem and archaeological treasures, Hawaiian culture and KS land resources.

No additional positions are required for the executive realignment, McCubbin said.

Kamehameha Schools is a $6 billion trust founded by the estate of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, great-granddaughter of King Kamehameha I.
