Washington, D.C. (March 9, 2021) – The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) Chief Executive Officer Carissa Moffat Miller released the following statement about Hawai’i Superintendent Christina Kishimoto’s departure.

“Superintendent Christina Kishimoto has dedicated her career to education, serving students at all levels across the country for more than two decades, and always with a relentless focus on equity. She is committed to the value and power of public education, believing schools serve as a hub of innovation for business and industry. At the national level, Christina has served as a valued member of CCSSO’s board of directors and a respected colleague for me and chiefs across the country. Most notably, she has focused on creating a path for future women leaders in education. I wish Christina the best as she moves on to new opportunities later this year, and I look forward to working with her successor to further equitable educational opportunities for all students in Hawai’i.”
