$639,250 BOOST FOR STUDENTS WHO NEED IT MOST
Thursday, 20 October 2016
Public schools in the Coogee electorate will receive an extra $639,250 for needs-based funding as its share of this year’s record $219 million additional funding, made possible by NSW signing the Gonski agreement.
“The NSW Government is delivering on its commitment to give additional school funding based on student need,” Mr Notley-Smith said.
“These extra resources go directly to our Coogee schools, allowing principals to meet the unique needs of their students and the school community.
“Schools in the Coogee electorate can employ additional teachers with expertise to assist students who need extra support in key learning areas like literacy and numeracy.”
In NSW public schools, needs-based funding is distributed under the Resource Allocation Model (RAM), which uses information about student need to deliver resources where they are needed most, just as Gonski recommended.
