Administrators in the Hawai‘i Department of Education often reach out to the Special Education Department at UH Mānoa to share employment opportunities.

Please contact the school directly and be mindful that we do not receive updates once the positions are full, so you would need to inquire to determine if the position shown is still available. Use the search bar below to filter and learn more details about various positions.

Check out the May 2023 UHM SPED Newsletter to see the 25+ positions that administrators shared for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year: bit.ly/uhmspednewsletter-may23

Tips & Recommendations for Inquiring or Interviewing for DOE Positions:

  1. Be prepared: Learn about the school you are applying to; every HIDOE school should have their own website. Be prepared to share why you want to work at that school and why you are interested in the available position.
  2. Be professional: All communication (phone, email) should use professional language. Use appropriate letter conventions (e.g., greeting, body, closing). For example, do not address administrators by their first name, especially if you have never met.
  3. Be mindful: Inquire for positions you really want. Do not set up interviews broadly, especially if you don't intend on accepting the position if offered.
