Cabinet paper: Towards a Comprehensive Reform of School Property

As part of the Education Portfolio Work Programme, the Minister of Education is undertaking a comprehensive reform of school property.

This work will ensure all students and teachers can learn and work in quality environments that support their success and form the basis of a long-term plan to protect and improve the Crown’s $30 billion school estate.

This cabinet paper outlines the initial plans for the reform and will support a long-term plan for school property to ensure all state schools are providing quality learning environments, clearly define roles and responsibilities for school property, and provide a long-term plan to progressively upgrade the Crown’s estate.

Opportunities for reform will be developed throughout 2018. These will be discussed with sector groups and more fully developed.
