Quality Schools Funding Reform Package
Ahead of tonight's Federal Budget, I wanted to let you know some specific details about the Government's new Quality Schools Funding Package.
This morning we launched an online estimator for parents, principals and teachers to see how their school stands to benefit from our needs-based funding plan.
While this remains an estimator until the legislation is finalised and passed, it provides an indication about how our needs-based funding reforms will allow for long-term planning for the future of each child and each school.
The calculator is available at www.education.gov.au/
The website also has a number of fact sheets on why the new funding model is necessary and how it will deliver a stronger education sector into the future.
Please forward this newsletter to any parents you know, so they can see exactly how their child's school will benefit.
The plan provides a significant funding boost for all of our local schools on the southern Gold Coast. I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak about the benefits of our plan in Parliament today.
As always, please feel free to contact my office on 5580 9111 if I can be of assistance on this or any other issue.
I'll be sending a special update later tonight with details on the Federal Budget, which the Treasurer will deliver in a few hours at 7.30pm.
