    (5) Despite subclauses (1) and (2), the Board of a high school may employ more permanently appointed regular teachers than is permitted under subclause (1), and may employ more other regular teachers than is permitted under subclause (2), if,—

    • (a) at some other time during the same year, the Board of the school has employed, or will employ, fewer regular teachers than the prescribed number; and

    • (b) the employment of those teachers does not, at any time, cause the number of regular teachers employed by the Board at the school to exceed by more than 10% the number of FTTEs that the Board is entitled to employ at that school under subclause (1) or subclause (2); and

    • (c) the net effect during the 2006 school year of employing the additional teachers does not result in the school’s Board employing regular teachers representing more FTTEs than it is entitled to employ over that school year.

38 No entitlement to carry over surplus beyond 31 March 2007
  • If, during the 2006 school year, a Board employs fewer regular teachers at a school than equate to the number of FTTEs that the Board is entitled to employ at that school under clause 37, there is no entitlement to carry the net surplus over after 31 March 2007.

39 Suspension of clause 37(5) if 10% limit exceeded
  • (1) If, contrary to clause 37(5)(b), a Board employs a regular teacher whose employment causes the number of regular teachers employed at a school to exceed by more than 10% the number of FTTEs that the Board is entitled to employ at that school, the Secretary may notify the Board, in writing, that clause 37(5) does not apply to it.

    (2) A notice under subclause (1) applies from the date on which it is received by the Board until the date on which the number of regular teachers employed by the Board at the school during the year up to that date equals the number of FTTEs that the Board was entitled to employ at that school under clause 37(1) to (3) during that period.

    (3) If a Board receives a notice under subclause (1), clause 37(5) does not apply to that Board from the date of receipt of that notice until the date on which that notice ceases to apply in accordance with subclause (2).

40 Limitation on employment of principals
  • (1) The Board of a high school may not employ more than 1 principal for the school at any time.

    (2) A combined Board established under section 110 of the Act may not employ more than 1 principal for each school that the combined Board administers at any time.

    (3) Subclauses (1) and (2) do not prevent the appointment of a principal during the term of his or her predecessor in office.

41 Limitation on employment of associate principals
  • (1) The Board of a high school with a roll of, or less than, 1 400 may not employ an associate principal for the school.

    (2) The Board of a high school with a roll of more than 1 400 may employ 1 associate principal for the school.

42 Limitation on employment of part-time teachers
  • The Board of a high school may not employ a part-time teacher for 0.9 of an FTTE or more.

43 Limitation on employment involving salary units
  • (1) Subject to clause 44, the Board of a high school may not employ regular teachers to whom salary units have been allocated (whether permanently or otherwise) whose employment taken together is equivalent to the employment of teachers to whom there have been allocated a total number of salary units greater than the number calculated for the high school under subclause (2).

    (2) The number calculated for the school referred to in subclause (1) is calculated by—

    • (a) subtracting 1 from the school’s formula-generated staffing allowance; and

    • (b) multiplying the resulting difference by 1.2; and

    • (c) adding 8 to the resulting product; and

    • (d) if the resulting sum is not a whole number, correcting it to the nearest whole number.

44 Adjustments to calculation of limitation on employment involving salary units
  • (1) In relation to a high school that is in receipt of a special education staffing allowance under clause 20, clause 43 must be applied by increasing the resulting sum calculated in accordance with that clause by adding the number of salary units generated by—

    • (a) adding the number of FTTEs of the school’s special education staffing allowance to the number of FTTEs, if any, of the school’s special education management allowance; and

    • (b) multiplying the resulting sum by 1.2; and

    • (c) if the resulting product is not a whole number, correcting it to the nearest whole number.

    (2) In relation to a high school listed in the first column of Schedule 1, clause 43 must be applied by increasing the resulting sum calculated in accordance with that clause by the number of salary units specified in the third column of that schedule opposite the name of the school.

    (3) In relation to a high school where a teen parent unit has been approved by the Minister, and a teen parent allowance has been calculated in accordance with Schedule 2, clause 43 must be applied by increasing the resulting sum calculated in accordance with that clause by the number of salary units specified in the third column of that schedule opposite the approved maximum roll assigned to the teen parent unit.

    (4) The increases provided for in subclauses (1) and (2) are, in relation to a high school to which both of those subclauses apply, cumulative.

    (5) The increases provided for in subclauses (1) to (4) are, in relation to a high school to which 2 or more of those subclauses apply, cumulative.

45 Limitation on employment involving middle management allowances
  • (1) The Board of a high school may not employ regular teachers to whom middle management allowances have been allocated (whether permanently or otherwise) whose employment taken together is equivalent to the employment of teachers to whom there have been allocated a total number of middle management allowances greater than the number calculated for the high school under subclause (2).

    (2) The number calculated for the school referred to in subclause (1) is calculated by—

    • (a) subtracting 1 from the school’s formula-generated staffing allowance; and

    • (b) multiplying the resulting difference by 0.5; and

    • (c) adding 4 to the resulting product; and

    • (d) if the resulting sum is not a whole number, correcting it to the nearest whole number.

46 Limitation on grades for principals
  • (1) The Board of a high school may not employ a principal at a grade higher than the grade specified in the first column of Schedule 4 opposite the roll range in which the school’s principal grading roll lies.

    (2) The principal grading roll for a school is the greater of—

    • (a) the school’s provisional rolls and provisional special education list, after any applicable weighting in accordance with subclause (7); and

    • (b) the school’s confirmed rolls and confirmed special education list, after any applicable weighting in accordance with subclause (7).

    (3) A school’s provisional rolls are the rolls estimated in accordance with clause 7.

    (4) A school’s confirmed rolls are the rolls confirmed by the Secretary under clause 9 or clause 10.

    (5) A school’s provisional special education list is its actual special education list determined by the Secretary as at 1 July 2005.

    (6) A school’s confirmed special education list is its special education list confirmed by the Secretary under clause 9 or clause 10.

    (7) For the purposes of determining the principal grading roll for 2006, the following weightings apply:

    • (a) 1 special education student with high needs is the equivalent of 3 students:

    • (b) 1 special education student with very high needs is the equivalent of 6 students.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 15 September 2005, prescribes limitations on the numbers of regular (ie, non-relieving) teachers who may be employed at state secondary schools and Form 1 to 7 schools in 2006. It sets out how the limitations are calculated, and the circumstances in which, and conditions on which, the Secretary may grant exemptions from the limitations.

The order largely repeats the equivalent order for last year. The substantive changes are as follows:

  • the total regular staffing allowance provisions in clause 32 reflect the introduction of 2 new allowances, the specialist classroom teacher time allowance (see clause 23) and the supplementary learning support teacher support allowance (see clause 26), as well as a change from the previous order’s supplementary learning support teacher time allowance to the supplementary learning support time allowance (see clause 22) in this order:

  • incremental increases in management time allowances are extended (see clause 18), so that there are increases in allowances for schools with rolls from 156 to 250 or more:

  • some of the figures used to calculate the curriculum delivery allowance, and to calculate adjustments to that calculation, are changed (see clauses 14 and 15):

  • changes to the limitations on grades for principals (see clause 46) introduce the principal grading roll, which is based on the greater of a school’s provisional and confirmed rolls and list:

  • a new exemption for supplementary learning support teachers (see clause 48) is available to a school’s Board:

  • the definition of Maori-medium student in clause 4 is no longer restricted to students who are Maori.
