Reforms to school governance in Victoria

Special report 
The new Education and Training Reform Bill currently before the Victorian Parliament seeks to consolidate and clarify the powers of school councils in government schools. It articulates clear objectives, functions and powers for school councils, as well as delineating the roles of councillors and principals. These legislative changes will be supported by complementary initiatives including simplification of council election processes, development of governance standards and a funding injection for school councillors’ training and support.
