National Standards: An important message

Issue: Volume 96, Number 20

Posted: 09:00am, 13 Nov 2017
Reference #: 1H9g79

The Ministry of Education is working with the Government on its policy to replace National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rūmaki Māori with a new system that better acknowledges a child’s progress and focuses more on developing key competencies for all learners.

Boards of trustees, principals, teachers, and parents will be kept informed of this change. 

In the interim, boards should continue to use the range of current tools they now have for reporting on student progress and achievement. 

Boards are asked to note that the National Administration Guidelines relating to their own planning and reporting processes and their reporting to parents, students, and the Ministry of Education on National Standards remain in place until officially changed.
