Question Without Notice No. 909 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 October 2018 by Hon Donna Faragher

Minister responding: Hon S.M. Ellery
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 10 October 2018


909. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to the government's decision to reduce the per-student funding allocation for schools with an enrolment threshold of 1 200 students or more in 2018.

(1) Can the minister confirm that this decision reduced the combined total per-student funding across these schools by $12.674 million; and, if not, what is the correct figure?

(2) Will the minister provide a breakdown of the redistributed funds referred to in (1) to —

(a) schools with fewer than 500 students;

(b) schools with 500 to 900 students; and

(c) support the delivery of Labor election commitments?

(3) With regard to 2(c), will the minister provide a further breakdown of the election commitments that have been supported through this redistribution, including funding amounts for each commitment?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(3) Please refer to Legislative Council question on notice 1204.
