Every state and state-integrated schools and kura in New Zealand is governed by a school board, which is a Crown entity. A Crown entity is an organisation that is part of New Zealand’s public sector. The board’s job is to see that everything that needs to be done gets done – legally, ethically, and in the best interests of its students. It is also the employer of all staff, including the principal, and sets the overall strategic direction . The principal is the board’s ‘chief executive’ and manages the school or kura in line with the board’s direction and policies.
