Effective governance - Working in partnership
Effective governance - working in partnership has been developed to help school boards of trustees understand their governance role and responsibilities. As a trustee, if you are clear about your role and responsibilities and what you are accountable for, then you have a sound basis for thinking about the accountabilities, roles and responsibilities of others in the school.
To support school trustees in their important role, the Ministry of Education commissioned BoardWorks International, and worked with the New Zealand School Trustee Association (NZSTA), to produce Effective governance - Working in partnership. This resource outlines effective governance's purpose, principles and practices.
