The following functions, powers and duties of the board are vested in a limited statutory manager:
- All functions, powers and duties of the board as an employer (whether statutory or otherwise);
- all functions, powers and duties of the board in curriculum management including teaching and assessment practice (whether statutory or otherwise); and
- all functions, powers and duties of the board to establish procedures and processes for school-wide self-review.
The limited statutory manager must also advise the board on consolidating all new and improved systems into board management practice.
This notice takes effect the day after the date of publication.
Dated at Wellington this 16th day of December 2010.
HON ANNE TOLLEY, Minister of Education.
