Schools we expect to close on Wednesday 29th May

We have asked schools to let us know their decision whether to stay open for instruction, close, or close but offer supervision on Wednesday 29 May.

There is no requirement to do so however, and the Ministry’s data can only be considered an estimate. For parents and caregivers, schools themselves will be the best source of information.

Within 24 hours of a strike concluding, boards must formally report to us on those teachers who have taken part in a strike. This is necessary to ensure the correct deductions/recoveries are made. It also  allows the  Ministry and schools to fulfil the legal obligation to report to MBIE numbers of strikers, hours and wages lost. 

Our joint MoE/NZSTA guidance encourages boards to advise their parent community about whether the school is open, closed or offering supervision.

We will update the below information, with advice received by schools the previous day, at 10am daily.

On Tuesday 59.1% of schools had advised us they would be closed on Wednesday 29 May.
