For the purposes of calculating the special school grant, Professional Staff are defined as those staff allocated to a special school through the Students with Disabilities or Whole School Support - Student Learning Resource Models. The following are considered Professional Staff: principals, deputies, teachers, nurses and education program officers.
  2. The above allocations are cumulative. Any establishment with multiple categories receives the allocation for each approved category at the host site, e.g. a P-12 school would receive an allocation for years P-6 and an allocation for years 7-12.
