What is the School Board of Trustees

School boards are responsible for the school or kura’s performance and ensuring that all legal requirements are met. They are responsible for

  • student achievement
  • the vision for the school or kura
  • ensures the school or kura complies with legal and policy requirements

Who can become a trustee?

Parents, caregivers and people from the wider community can be nominated for election to a school board or kura. Your school or kura will be happy to help you find out more about standing for election or nominating someone else.

What skills do trustees need?

Trustees are active leaders in their school or kura and need to work well in a team, ask challenging questions and have good communication skills. Boards need a balance of skills and experiences to ensure effective processes for planning, monitoring, reporting and reviewing the school or kura’s performance are in place.

How do I become a trustee?

Contact your school or kura if you are interested in becoming a school trustee. There are a variety of ways this can be achieved outside of the trustee elections. If you want to find out about standing for election, nominating someone else and voting in the election – they will be happy to help. For more information visit:
