Welcome to the online handbook for Boards of Trustees of Catholic Schools. The New Zealand Catholic Education Office (NZCEO) has developed this resource to help Boards of Trustees focus on those aspects of a state-integrated school that differ from a state school.
The purpose of handbook
While this handbook is meant primarily for Proprietors’ appointees, it is also applicable to trustees of Catholic state-integrated schools as well as principals and senior management teams. All share responsibility for the Catholic character of their respective schools through the contractual responsibilities set out in the Integration Agreement.
This site will be the location of the most update information, guidance and resources for boards of trustees.
More information and support
Visit the NZCEO website for further information and resources.
There are excellent governance guides available from the School Trustees Association and Ministry of Education that cover aspects common to both state and state-integrated schools.
