Direct Measure of Income (DMI) Methodology factsheets now available

From 2020 the Australian Government is phasing in a new methodology for determining a school community’s capacity to contribute to the costs of schooling which will impact on the amount of funding non-government schools receive. Called the Direct Measure of Income (DMI), this new methodology represents a major change to the needs-based school funding model.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has now provided schools with their individual DMI scores, they have also published a set of factsheets about the DMI methodology and its implications for schools. These can be found on the Department’s website:
