Introduction to Student-Centred Funding and the School Resourcing System

About the program

Introduction to Student-Centred Funding and the School Resourcing System is designed primarily for beginning school leaders, school clerical and business management staff with limited experience using the School Resourcing System.

This half-day workshop will enable participants to build their knowledge and understanding of student-centred funding and how to maximise the allocation of resources in a whole school budget.

At the completion of the program, participants will have:

  • an overview of student-centred funding
  • an overview of the Funding Agreement for Schools
  • concepts related to leading a one line budget
  • an overview of the operational and preliminary planning dashboards
  • an overview of the school allocation module (SAM)
  • an overview of support tools available to schools.

The session links directly to Classroom First and the strategic direction High Performance High Care.  Linking school funds to student need is a key platform of Classroom First and more recently the linking of school funding with planning and priorities to demonstrate effective use of resources is highlighted in Focus 2017.
