Further information regarding Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage (ICSEA)
A fixed annual budget of $23.7M is allocated to schools in three (3) categories.
School allocations are calculated to fit within the fixed annual budget of $5.7M using the school's ICSEA* value from the previous year, and the average of P-2 enrolments from February and August of the current year.
*ICSEA is a scale that measures educational disadvantage determined by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) through the collection of student family background data.
Funding is for students who are below the national minimum standard (NMS) in reading and numeracy (based on the National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) results):
School allocations are based on a rate per group of three students (or part thereof) who perform below the National Minimum Standard (NMS) in NAPLAN Reading or NAPLAN Numeracy to fit within the fixed annual budget of $10M.
Funding is provided to the school where the student was enrolled at the time of NAPLAN testing.
Special schools and detention centres are excluded from receiving ITA funding.
Schools receive a set annual allocation based on historical literacy enhancement data to fit within the fixed annual budget of $7.9M.
