Publishing your documents online

Your board is now required to make the school’s annual report available to the public on an internet site maintained by or on behalf of the board (see the update to the Education Act 1989 (external link) ). Making annual reports available on an internet site ensures that parents and the wider community can access information about what your school has achieved and how your board has managed school finances in the previous school year.

Please ensure your annual report does not contain any information that may breach an individual’s privacy before you make it publicly available. Guidelines about the Privacy Act are available from the New Zealand School Trustees Association (external link) . You may also find the information in the following document helpful.
