HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's Department of Education has redesigned its website after nearly a year of research and $1.7 million in federal funds.

HawaiiPublicSchools.org launched Monday.

Education officials say the overhauled site will increase communication and transparency.

The department used some of its federal Race to the Top money to build the new site. The money will also be used to develop an employee intranet, which is set to launch in the fall. Hawaii won a $75 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to implement educational reforms.

The department says the site is the product of nearly a year of research, along with input from the public and staff.
