Karaka School uses an online system, SchoolDocs, for all its policies and procedures.

How SchoolDocs Helps:

SchoolDocs helps schools to avoid re-inventing the wheel with documentation. Staff, Board of Trustees and Parents are able to find and access policies and procedures easily, and review them online in a matter of minutes. This dramatically reduces costs, improves the effectiveness of policies and procedures, and leaves principals, senior management, and boards with more time to focus on teaching and learning.

Regular, small reviews help the board to stay up-to-date, and engage with reviews and new content regularly, rather than in one big, daunting burst.

Policies and procedures are accessed online via a password protected website. This is available to the whole school community.

SchoolDocs eliminates the risk of poorly drafted policy. Content is monitored and updated regularly to comply with New Zealand legislation, ERO requirements, MOE guidelines, other audits, and in response to our own reviews.

Regular Reminders:

The SchoolDocs advisory service sends regular emails direct to a designated person/s inbox to remind us what to do, when and how. This service helps keep us up-to-date with the latest compliance requirements.
