Board of Trustees Elections

By OBHS | Posted: Tuesday January 22, 2019

New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA) are preparing for the upcoming Triennial BoT elections.

NZSTA is working very hard to encourage parent and whanau participation on school boards in order to help shape and support the education of their children. To that end, they will be rolling out the Korari Programme for anyone interested in finding out about standing for the school board elections and having a say in the education of their children.

1. Korari: a programme (workshop) that provides you with governance training to help you understand the role of school boards of trustees.

NZSTA will be rolling out workshops for Korari in March/April this year.  We will advise when the local workshop will be run.

2. Korari form: NZSTA will support anyone who advises us they are interested in becoming a trustee, by way of the workshops but also providing access to their Learning Management System where online modules re. school governance, student achievement etc. can be completed.

Attached is a form for completion which should be emailed to [email protected]

3. Community member guide to the role of the board of trustees: This explains a lot of commonly asked questions and information about becoming a trustee.
