The Board of Trustees is committed to maintaining the guiding principles of Te Aho Matua. The Board of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ōtepoti is an elected Board by the Kura whānau and is entrusted to provide strategic leadership rather than the administration detail for the Kura. It ensures that the Kura complies with legal and policy requirements. It keeps enhancing student achievement as its focus. 

The Board delegates all authority and accountability for the day-to-day operational organisation of the Kura to the Tumuaki.
