We have successfully lobbied the Department of Education and Education Minister to remove the deadline for schools to make funding applications for students in the 55-70 IQ range.
Schools can now put forward new students for consideration of FSIQ 55-70 funding support at any time during the 2016 or 2017 school year. A psychologist assessment and IEP need to be completed.
Students who are currently receiving this funding support in 2016 will continue to do so if enrolled in a government school in 2017.
Each student must have a current Individual Education Plan (IEP) within the Student Support System.
“In union” we can do more for students!
