School Students with Disability

education-councilToday we are making available a fact sheet for parents/carers provided by the Department of Education and Training.

From 2015 all government and non-government schools in Australia will be required to participate annually in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability. The data collection will provide all Australian schools, education authorities and the community with nationally consistent information about the number of school students with disability and the level of adjustment being made in schools to enable the students to access and participate in learning on the same basis as their peers.

No personal information that identifies students or schools is provided to the Department of Education and Training.

Consistent with the information for parents/carers (fact sheet included in the newsletter), please contact the Principal if you don’t want to have your child’s information included in the national data collection.

More information is also available on the Department of Education and Training website or from the School Students with a Disability Fact Sheet.
