Applications for Certificates of Exemption from Enrolment at a Registered School

Bella Farland made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

The request was successful.

From: Bella Farland

Dear Ministry of Education,

I would like to request information on the number of Applications for Certificates of Exemption from Enrolment at a Registered School that were received by the Ministry, as well as the decisions that were made on them.

Can you please provide the following information?

For each quarter for the previous five years (i.e. Q3 2016 through Q2 2021), how many Applications for Certificates of Exemption from Enrolment at a Registered School were received? And in each of those quarters, how many Applications for Certificates of Exemption from Enrolment at a Registered School were approved, and how many were declined?

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Bella Farland

The information the Ministry has provided are on Early Leaving Exemptions only, which are only for 15 yos who wish to leave school (Section 39 exemptions). They do not include long term exemptions from enrolment (Section 38 homeschooling exemptions). Is this what the requester wanted?

Dear Cynthia Hancox-

Thank you for bringing my attention to this - I wasn't aware of two different exemptions under two different sections. I was indeed interested in those exemptions covered by Section 38, so I will now submit another OIA request. Thanks again.

Regarding Cynthia's point above, it turns out that the numbers in this request are for Section 38 Long-Term Exemptions from Enrolment; the Ministry used the wrong title in their response. See the full details in their response to: https://fyi.org.nz/request/17052-section...
