Election to a School Board of Trustees is one of the most significant democratic processes in New Zealand.

School communities around the country select a group of people to govern their school. NZSTA in partnership with the Ministry of Education, supports boards and returning officers through the election processes.  This includes both the Triennial and Mid-Term elections.
