What does a School Board do?
The board's role is to oversee the governance of its school or kura and to ensure that everything that needs to be done gets done - legally, ethically, and as well as possible in the best interests of its students.
This is achieved through particular governance activities such as:
the strategic direction and targets for the school or kura
planning towards and reporting on achieving those targets
financial and property management
policies and procedures
health and safety
employment of staff at the school or kura.
