HOW WILL THE CORONAVIRUS AFFECT MY APPEAL?
In common with all organisations we are following the advice of the Government’s medical advisors. Panel members are trained volunteers and many are seniors; we would not like to put them or you at unnecessary risk.
All appeals due to be heard by 30 September 2020 will NOT be heard at face to face hearings.
Te Government have published new guidance to give panels additional powers to meet virtually on line or by telephone or to hear the appeals using only the paperwork submitted by parents. We would prefer to use the virtual meeting route.
We would suggest that you download ‘Zoom for Cloud’ now from either the Apple or Goggle stores onto your smart phone or tablet. Or view www.zoom.us on your desktop or laptop computer. Registration and use of this program is free if connected to the internet. In both cases, follow the instructions to register to join a meeting. Further instructions will be sent with your letter of invitation and this may be sent by e mail.
