Great Results Guarantee

6/02/2014
 An additional $131 million will be invested in Queensland's 1233 state and Independent Public Schools in 2014 to improve student performance.

All schools will receive their current level of funding plus a share of the $131 million - so every school will benefit.

To receive the funding schools must complete an agreement that commits them to guarantee that every student will either:

  • achieve the National Minimum Standard for literacy and numeracy for their year level or

  • have an evidence-based plan, developed by the school, in place to address their specific learning difficulties.

The agreement will outline how each school will use the additional funding to improve student performance and schools will have the flexibility and autonomy to decide how the funding should be spent.

State schools will enter into an agreement with the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE), while Independent Public Schools will establish an agreement with the School Council. Agreements will be published on school websites so that parents and other members of the community can see how this funding is being used.

Student performance will be measured throughout the year and schools will be required to demonstrate how the extra funding is helping to maximise learning outcomes for all students.
