Hawaii P-20 will be accepting requests for bus funding support from schools that have at least 50% of students receiving free or reduced price lunch. Complete this form and email, fax, or mail DOE GEAR UP a written bus quote from the bus company. Schools must work directly with the bus company to reserve the bus and to confirm pickup locations and times.

The purpose of this funding is to enable students to attend a college, career preparation, or educational field trip. Such field trips should expose participants to the different choices, options, requirements or pathways related to college or different careers. All activities need to align with Hawaii P-20 college access and enrollment strategies:

1) Improve college and career readiness through early academic preparation;
2) Expand college-level learning opportunities for high school students;
3) Increase access to postsecondary options for every student; and
4) Increase postsecondary enrollment and successful first-year completion

All field trips are to be well-planned with definite purpose and follow-through in the classroom. Students should understand the objectives of the field trip and their relevance to the classroom curriculum and/or college preparation.

Bus requests should be submitted no later than 3 weeks prior to the event. Requests submitted less than 3 weeks prior to the event may not be approved as there will not be enough time to process the necessary paperwork to pay for the bus. After your request is received, we'll email you within a week to inform you of your approval or if we need additional information from you.

Please make sure to have your bus company send a quote to:
Department of Education
475 22nd Avenue, Room 109
Honolulu, Hawaii 96816
Fax: (808) 735-8379
Please direct inquiries regarding bus quote submittal to Adele Wada or Sharlene Watanabe at (808) 305-9720.
