Governance review

May 18, 2013

The Victorian Government has developed a Compact which complements Towards Victoria as a Learning Community. The Compact can be used by school councils as a discussion tool in further exploring and developing policies, plans and partnerships - the '3Ps' - which may support students' personalised learning and development.

As well, the Government is conducting a school governance review. VICCSO is a member of the School Governance Review Reference Group. VICCSO will also co-host a school governance forum involving principals, parents, teachers and students, and prepare a school improvement and school governance discussion paper.
