SCHOOLS — BUILDING CONDITION ASSESSMENTS
      786. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the Minister for Education and Training:
(1) Has a new building condition assessment process commenced across government schools?
(2) If yes to (1), when did the assessment commence and when is it expected to be completed?
(3) If no to (1), why not?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1) Yes.
      (2) A pilot study of a new BCA process was undertaken on a small number of schools, initially commencing in December 2016, and was focused on confirming the methodology. As a result of the pilot study, there were further changes to the methodology. The full BCA survey of every school is now underway and that will produce a report for every school as per the process in previous years. It is anticipated that the survey will be completed in mid-2018.
      (3) Not applicable.
