Uptake of transition plans as per the Education and Training Act 2020
This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Donnelle Cheree to read a recent response and update the status.
From: Donnelle Cheree
Dear Ministry of Education,
Section 42 of the Education and Training Act enables a student’s parent (or full-time caregiver where appropriate), their principal and the Secretary for Education to agree to vary hours as part of a transitional attendance plan when the particular needs of the student require this. The plan can be for no more than six months duration but can be renewed once only for a further period of up to six months.
1) How many students, per month, have had an "initial" transition plan back to full-time attendance, since August 2020?
2) How many students, per month, have had their transition plan renewed, since (six months after) August 2020?
3) How many students have been granted a "initial" transition plan of six months, more than once? (part-time, full-time, part-time.)
4) How many students, per month, have been granted an exemption to allow part-time attendance for longer than 12 months?
