Te Rito Kaitiakitanga

Trusted, transparent and equitable oversight of ākonga data

We are establishing Te Rito Kaitiakitanga, a cross-sector data oversight group focused on ensuring trusted, transparent and equitable oversight of the data in Te Rito. 

Te Rito Kaitiakitanga will oversee who has access to and use of data, who data can be shared with, and under what conditions data can be shared. This work is in addition to ensuring alignment with the Privacy Act 2020 and consents gained by schools, kura, early learning services, and ngā kōhanga reo.

Te Rito Kaitiakitanga will take an ākonga-centred approach, with a particular focus on the needs of Māori and Pacific ākonga, and ākonga and learners with disabilities or learning support needs.

The group will work with the Ministry to help us understand Māori data sovereignty interest.
