In state integrated schools there may be special requirements when appointing staff, particularly to “tagged positions”.  Boards can seek advice from their proprietor and the below organisations.

The Association of Proprietors of Integrated Schools (APIS) provides advice and guidance to boards and proprietors of state-integrated schools.

The  New Zealand Catholic Education Office (NZCEO) is the operational office for APIS and provides support and resources for Catholic state integrated schools including a Handbook For The Board of Trustees Of NZ Catholic Integrated Schools 2016.  This handbook provides much information that is relevant to all state integrated schools.

The Association of Integrated Schools NZ (AIS NZ) provides support and resources for non Catholic state integrated schools.  Their Proprietor Handbook contains information on tagged positions.
