Education Minister Anne Tolley has ordered a commissioner to
replace the board of trustees at Otepopo School - a former
winner of the Goodman Fielder best small school award -
following a critical Education Review Office (ERO) report.
Cuts have been made and with a proposed 3.3% rates rise for
the next financial year, Waitaki Mayor Alex Familton says it
is now up to the community to "either confirm that direction
or request changes".
