Resourcing For The Future – Facts @ A Glance

 Resourcing For The Future – Facts @ A Glance

Trevor Mallard

 Who's affected?

 All state and integrated school – they'll know what funding they'll receive next year.

 How much will they get?

 That depends on their roll and decile rating.

 Is this final, or will it change?

 It is the final formula, but it is based on this year's roll numbers so the final amount depends on what each school's roll is next year. For bulk funded schools, the difference in this year's and next year's funding could vary if their staffing profile has changed within this year.

 What percentage of schools gain and lose funding?

 About 78% of schools will get more funding next year including all centrally resourced schools and 31% of bulk funded schools

 How much extra funding will be in schools?

 Significantly more - $60 million or a 7.4% increase overall.

 Is that all from bulk funding?

 No – that includes an inflation adjusted increase of 1.8% increase to operational funding, a total of $15 million.

 So how do you get to $60 million?

 Of the $107 million 'bulk funding' money only $62 million was given to schools this year. Next year, the entire $107 will be distributed among all schools. So the extra $45 million as well as the inflation increase on operation grants means an extra $60 million in schools next year.

 What's the flexibility about?


 The Government will retain the responsibility for paying the salaries of entitlement staffing, but schools might like to add to that with their extra operational funding. For example, there will be: More flexibility in employing extra teaching staff from operations funds. Ability to both anticipate the use of, and accrue staffing entitlement (banking staffing) The use of operations fund to pay teaching staff further for recruitment, retention, and additional responsibilities.
