[FYI request #11267 email]
Tēnā koe Emma,
Thank you for your email of 23 September 2019 to the Ministry of Education requesting the
“1. How many teacher aide support applications have been made by all Taupo
Primary Schools in the past 2 years?
1a. Please can you specify the amount of applications made by each school?
2. How many teacher aide support applications have been refused?
3. What reasons for refusals were given?”
Your request for ‘how many teacher aid support applications’
is very broad in nature and scope
and, as currently worded, would likely be refused under section 18(f) of the Act, as the
requested information cannot be made available without substantial collation and research.
As we have several funding groups within the teacher aide support applications, we would like
who will be able to assist you with identifying the specific
application you are requesting and clarifiying your request.
Once we hear back from you we will commence work on your request. Please note, any
clarification or amendment of a request is considered to be a new request for the purpose of
calculating the maximum statutory timeframe for response under section 15(1AA) of the OIA.
We would be grateful if you could make contact with Dawid de Villier by 4 October 2019.
Nāku noa, nā
