Time is Running Out for School Funding Certainty

With the 2017 school year already well underway, the Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) is increasingly alarmed that the Government has yet to provide any clarity on school funding arrangements for 2018.

ISCA Executive Director Colette Colman today said that, “The Commonwealth Government has made public assurances that the Independent school sector would be consulted on proposed changes to current school funding arrangements, yet with less than 12 months until the Government’s current funding commitment ends and potential new arrangements are due to take effect, we have not seen any details.”

Ms Colman also said that at a meeting in Canberra this week, Heads of Associations of Independent Schools from each state and territory highlighted the negative impact on schools and students the current uncertainty around future funding is having. “Parents make a commitment to enrolling their children in an Independent school based on an expectation of a predictable funding commitment by Government. Stand-alone Independent schools are highly vulnerable to funding changes as they do not have systemic backup. Sudden alterations to funding would affect schools’ capacity to plan their operations going forward with confidence.”

“Independent schools call on the Government to urgently resolve this issue.”
