Statistics New Zealand update
Statistics New Zealand have provided an update of the iwi list. This update includes 35 new iwi, some corrections to iwi names and reclassifications of existing iwi. This update will allow more detailed and accurate reporting for Statistics New Zealand and the Ministry of Education. The update will occur in different stages depending on the Student Management System (SMS) you use.
ELI Web users
In late April 2018, new and updated iwi names will be available in ELI Web for selection. If a child has been assigned an iwi that is no longer available from late April, you need to update their iwi when updating their demographic information as the iwi will be listed as “(Replaced 2018) (Iwi Name)”.
All other SMS users
In mid-May 2018, your SMS will have new and updated iwi names within your system for selection. Your SMS will inform you when this update has gone live and what you will need to do if the process of assigning an iwi has changed.
