$20 mil­lion fund­ing boost

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS: QLD/NT -

THE North­ern Ter­ri­tory La­bor Gov­ern­ment has de­liv­ered the first stage of its four year, $124 mil­lion in­vest­ment to 151 gov­ern­ment schools across the Ter­ri­tory.

Ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Eva Lawler said that schools can choose how to al­lo­cate the funds to best meet the needs of their stu­dents.

“This might be in the form of ex­tra teach­ers, sup­port staff or ad­di­tional school re­sources to de­liver high qual­ity teach­ing and learn­ing pro­grams,” Ms Lawler said.

An ad­di­tional $20 mil­lion was al­lo­cated to schools through an ad­justed stu­dent needs-based for­mula fol­low­ing feed­back from ed­u­ca­tion stake­hold­ers and anal­y­sis of school bud­gets.
