A Parent’s Guide to the Role of the Board of Trustees helps parents and caregivers understand that the school boards are responsible for the school or kura’s performance, are accountable for student achievement, set the vision for the school or kura, and ensure the school or kura complies with legal and policy requirements.

The guide also provides information on frequently asked questions that parents and caregivers raise about the functions of boards.

An electronic version of the guide can be found at:
