Additional resourcing packages—unexpected staffing costs

WebPartZone1_1
PublishingPageContent

Purpose

The additional resourcing packages—unexpected staffing costs is an annual process that considers school-based requests for compensation when a school experiences financial distress caused by the cost of replacing classroom teachers in notionally allocated positions who are absent on short-term leave.

The additional resourcing package process is managed centrally to ensure state-wide consistency.

Duration of program

From Semester 1 2020 – ongoing

Eligibility

All Queensland state schools

Allocation of funds

Assessment for an additional resourcing package occurs during Term 1 of each calendar year to help replace un-budgeted staffing costs incurred in the immediately preceding calendar year that the school has sourced from cash reserves and other activities.

Additional resourcing approved may be in the form of notionally allocated classroom teacher positions (from central office or regional additional allocation pools) and/or an appropriation.

Any additional notionally allocated resourcing is provided for one year only and may not be converted to cash for use in a subsequent year.

TRACER is the approved system for the recording of replacement of notionally allocated classroom teachers on short-term leave. Only schools using TRACER will be eligible for an additional resourcing package.

The School Budget Solution (SBS) is the approved system for the recording and conversion of unused staffing credits. Schools must have a confirmed staffing profile in the SBS to be eligible for an additional resourcing package.
