  • The TIDE, ORS, and AIRWays Reporting systems are back online for the 2019-2020 school year. As part of the TIDE system roll-over for the new school year, all HSAP system user passwords in TIDE have been cleared, and all HIDOE employee TIDE logins (except Charter school user logins) have been updated to reflect the new email format, employeeID#@k12.hi.us. Charter school user logins have not changed and will remain in their existing format. Please review the instructions in this PDF document to create a new password for the 2019-2020 school year. All users who had access to HSAP systems in 2018-2019 will continue to have access this year, although users are required to reset their password. If a user should no longer have an account, (i.e., users who transferred, retired, or are no longer administering a test) their school test coordinator should follow the process outlined in the TIDE User Guide to remove their system access to prevent unauthorized access to student information.
