11I Proposed enrolment schemes to be approved by Secretary


The Secretary may approve the proposed enrolment scheme of a State school only if he or she is satisfied that—


the scheme complies, as far as possible, with the purpose and principles of enrolment schemes as set out in section 11A; and


the definition of the school’s home zone in the enrolment scheme ensures that students can attend a reasonably convenient school; and


the boundaries of the school’s home zone overlap or are contiguous with the boundaries of the home zone of any adjacent State school that has an enrolment scheme; and


the scheme promotes the best use of the network of State schools in the area; and


the procedures for determining which applicants who live outside the home zone will be offered places at the school comply with section 11F and any instructions issued under section 11G; and


the board has carried out adequate consultation under section 11H.


If a board and the Secretary are unable to reach agreement about the content of the school’s enrolment scheme or proposed enrolment scheme, the Secretary may require the board to amend the scheme or proposed scheme in the manner required by the Secretary.


A board that receives a requirement under subsection (2) must, as soon as practicable, change its enrolment scheme or proposed enrolment scheme to give effect to the Secretary’s requirement, and the board need not obtain separate approval from the Secretary for the change.

Section 11I: replaced, on 8 July 2000, by section 4 of the Education Amendment Act 2000 (2000 No 21).
