OSCAR Consultation

The Ministry of Social Development consulted with OSCAR representatives to gather feedback about the potential impact of proposed changes to the OSCAR standards and funding. The proposed changes were designed to improve OSCAR by:

  • simplifying the OSCAR standards
  • making the approvals process easier
  • using grant funding more effectively
  • removing barriers to school involvement with OSCAR.

The consultation process was designed to test some initial proposals, and to draw on the sector's expertise to further develop proposals that would effectively improve OSCAR.

A summary of the consultation and its findings can be downloaded, as can summaries of the feedback received at consultation meetings.
