Key Roles of the Board

Take overall responsibility for the school.

Set goals and policies for the school and monitor performance of the school against those goals and policies.

Appoint and support the principal of the school.

Ratify the appointment of all staff.

Ensure that the school operates as a good employer.

Ensure that there is a good communication between the school and its community.

The Board's role is not a "hands on" management activity. The Board sets goals and policies, the principal and staff implement them by fulfilling the day to day management and professional tasks within the school.

The Tongariro School Board meet every third Monday of each month in the Board room. As this is a public meeting, parents, guardians and other interested parties may attend as well.
