Coromandel Area School Enrolment Scheme

Closes 27 May 2022

Opened 13 Apr 2022

Overview

The Ministry of Education is currently working with the Board of Coromandel Area School to implement a new enrolment scheme.

Enrolment schemes are needed to help manage the risk of overcrowding at schools.  This allows Boards to manage the risk of overcrowding, provides a fair and transparent process for enrolment and ensures we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the area.

Enrolment schemes do mean that all families will have entitlement to attend a school that is reasonably convenient to them but won’t necessarily have the same entitlement to enrol at all state schools. 

Note - students already enrolled at a school before a home zone is implemented or changed are entitled to stay at their current school.

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we implement amendments or new zones – especially the practical implication and whether the amended boundaries accurately reflect the area.  Please have a look at the draft map and overview information available below before you participate in the consultation process. You may also want to read the FAQs about enrolment schemes.

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.  It’s important to note that a student’s eligibility to enrol may be different to their eligibility for School Transport assistance.  Further information about eligibility to school transport can be found here.

  • Completing the survey below.
  • Emailing waikato.enrolmentschemes@education.govt.nz if you have further questions or comments.

The Ministry will consider all feedback and consult with the school board before making a final decision. We expect the School community to be updated about progress made towards the end of Term 3. The new schemes and changes are expected to come into effect for the beginning of Term 4.
