Doug Doi

As a member of the University Laboratory School art faculty for thirty years and a parent of a ULS student for three, Doug Doi is familiar with the school’s operation from two perspectives. He added a third perspective when he was elected Local School Board Chair. As a member of the charter school board he has become conversant not only with curriculum and instructional strategies, but also with the services and requirements of the Board of Education. Doi chairs the meetings of the board that meets at least four times per year. Asked to reflect on his new position, his response was direct: “Knowledge is good.”

Fred Birkett

In August 2007, CRDG welcomed Fred Birkett as principal of the University Laboratory School. A former United States Air Force officer, Birkett received his BA and teaching credential from Fordham University and his EdM from Harvard University. He brought twenty years of experience developing productive student-focused and standards-based instruction in the charter school arena in Boston, Harlem, and Hawai‘i. In 2006 he became Charter School Panel Chairman for the Hawai‘i Board of Education. In 2000 Birkett published A Parents Guide to Charter Schools, Everything You Wanted to Know to Find the Right School for Your Child. He served most recently as principal of Lanikai Elementary Public Charter School in Kailua, which was recognized as a Distinguished School for two years.
