For funded organisations

PublishingPageContent

The SDSS Program supports schools by providing funding to approved organisations to deliver services to improve access to, and participation in, the curriculum and the educational outcomes for eligible school-aged students with disability.

The SDSS Program Guidelines (PDF, 538KB) were established and provide the program's purpose, objectives, terms and conditions. Funded organisations are required to maintain compliance with these guidelines throughout the funding period and in accordance with their service agreement.

Key reporting documents and required forms

Performance reports—due 30 January

Certificate of expenditure—due 30 January

A certificate of expenditure is required for each approved funding category each year.

Audit report—due 1 August

An audit report in accordance with your service agreement must be provided each year.

The audit report must identify each funding category separately in a similar format as the certificate of expenditure.

Other documents

School request for support form (SRSF)

It is a requirement of your service agreement to obtain a signed SRSF, which is valid for the current school year. The SRSF must be renewed each year.

Funded organisations may either utilise the relevant form below or incorporate all provisions contained within this form into their own document for schools to request services under the SDSS program.

Protocols for SDSS services

Protocols for delivering SDSS services to schools have been developed to assist SDSS organisations to establish and maintain effective professional engagements between SDSS organisations and schools including initial contact and appointments.

Changes to the approved funding under your service agreement

The department recognises that services and funding requirements may change over the funding period, including changes to improve outcomes and ensure alignment with the SDSS Program objectives.

Your service agreement provides capacity to make changes within a defined limit.

The Reallocation of funding or variation to service agreement—limits table (PDF, 18KB) illustrates the limits (per annum) that your organisation may change within each funding type before a Request to reallocate funding form or a Request for service agreement variation form is required. 

The limits in the table only apply to changes to items that are already approved for funding under your organisation’s current service agreement. Any proposed new items require the submission of a request to reallocate funding form or a request for service agreement variation form.

If you wish to transfer funding between different funding types you must submit a request to reallocate funding form or a request for service agreement variation form (e.g. the transfer of unspent funds from the funding type 'Professional Development' to supplement the funding type 'Travel and Accommodation').

All requests to reallocate funding or requests for service agreement variations are to be emailed to the SDSS inbox.

Request to reallocate funding form

Use the  Request to reallocate funding form (DOC, 199KB) when the proposed changes to funding are above the limits detailed in the reallocation of funding or variation to service agreement—limits table and the changes are for a single funding year only. The approved funding tables in your service agreement will stay the same for the remainder of the service agreement period.

Request for service agreement variation form

Use the Request for service agreement variation form (DOC, 268KB) when the proposed changes to funding are above the limits detailed in the reallocation of funding or variation to service agreement—limits table and the changes are expected to be ongoing for the remainder of the service agreement period. If approved, the approved funding tables in your service agreement will be changed for the remainder of the service agreement period.

School request for support form

A new form is not required if goals change between each renewal period. It would be advisable to confirm any changes to support needs or goals in writing to ensure the school and your organisation's support team are aligned.
