The great majority of school communities have their needs met through an unincorporated council or board.
An unincorporated public school Council or Board in Western Australia is regulated by the School Education Act 1999, School Education Regulations 2000 and the individual Council’s Terms of Reference.
An unincorporated Council uses the approved Terms of Reference to define its way of working and meet the requirements of the legislation.
Further information on the Terms of Reference for Unincorporated Councils is available in an information package. The package also includes advice on the roles and responsibilities of a school council or board, membership, and procedures for conducting elections and meetings.
