School Council

All government schools in Victoria, apart from the Distance Education Centre Victoria, have a school council. The school council is the group of people who govern the school. It is given the power to set the key directions for the school, and is a legal entity in its own right. A school council directly influences the quality of education that a school provides to its students.

Three of the critical roles of school councils are; participating in the   development of the strategic plan, approving the annual budget, and developing, reviewing and updating policies.

Other roles include:

  • school maintenance
  • sub-contracting
  • fundraising
  • developing, reviewing and monitoring the Student Code of Conduct and the School Dress Code
  • school community engagement.
