Improving Student Outcomes

The key focus of any board of trustees is undoubtedly on improving student achievement. 

This is done by providing a positive environment for the delivery of quality educational outcomes through focused strategic and annual planning target setting, particularly for those students who are not achieving as they should.

Setting high standards and high expectations around achievement, monitoring of progress towards targets, self review, and adopting a climate of continuous improvement, are all marks of a highly effective board and something all boards should be aspiring to, if not already doing.

NZSTA is committed to supporting all boards in this important role by providing you with professional development opportunities and support, which will greatly enhance your knowledge and skills.
