Pili a Paʻa engages teachers in a two week intensive coaching/collaboration experience constructing units of instruction featuring high interest and varied learning activities. Coaches provide critical/constructive feedback and research based instructional strategies to increase learning for each student. Programs in Kona serve Holualoa Elementary and Kealakehe Intermediate. A sister program in Kohala serves public Elementary, Middle and High schools. 


Replacement Instructors shadow teachers for one week before taking over participating teachers classrooms allowing for a smooth instructional transition.
