PublishingPageContent

Purpose

To ensure all Queensland state schools have access to a secure, reliable and personalised information and communication technology (ICT) learning platform.

This ongoing resourcing for IT support will give schools the certainty of funding to allow them to offer permanency for existing staff or to continue other existing arrangements.

Duration of program

Ongoing

Eligibility

All state schools, including outdoor and environmental education centres.

Allocation of funds

Funding for this appropriation is calculated in the following way:

School of Distance Education (SDE)

SDE schools will only receive funding for this appropriation when their enrolments exceed the following enrolment requirements:

  • Brisbane SDE—for all enrolments over 2,000
  • All other SDE—for all enrolments over 1,000
  • Formula = (Total Enrolments – enrolment requirement) * IT support staff rate.

Primary and secondary schools

Primary and secondary schools will receive a minimum allocation equivalent to 50 students.

Formula = Total enrolments [minimum 50] * IT support staff rate.

Special schools

Special Schools will also receive a minimum allocation equivalent to 50 students. To provide a greater equity for the Special schools entitlements, the Special Teaching Staff Full-time equivalent (FTE) will also be used to calculate entitlements.

Formula = (Total enrolments [minimum 50] + Special Teacher FTE) * IT support staff rate.

Payments rates are as follows:

  • 2020—Maximum (50 or Enrolments) * $73
  • 2021—Maximum (50 or Enrolments) * $77

From 2022, the amount per student will be indexed by 2.5% per annum.
