HONOLULU — Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) Superintendent Keith Hayashi has appointed two veteran leaders to help strengthen the Department’s capacity to deliver on its priorities and goals and mitigate the negative impacts of the pandemic on students and schools.
Tammi Oyadomari-Chun has been named deputy superintendent of strategy and Curt T. Otaguro has been named deputy superintendent of operations. Hayashi said the deputy superintendents will help the Department:
The Board of Education voted on last week to approve the appointments and starting salaries at its General Business Meeting. The appointments took effect on Aug. 22.
The new deputies add to the Department’s existing deputy superintendent position overseeing academics, held by Heidi Armstrong.
Armstrong was named interim deputy superintendent on July 1 after serving as assistant deputy superintendent from April to June to ensure a smooth leadership transition for the Office of the Deputy Superintendent. She brings over 30 years of experience spanning school, district and state leadership positions, including as assistant superintendent for the Office of Student Support Services and complex area superintendent for the Campbell-Kapolei Complex Area.
