4 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU KEY MESSAGES These reforms respond to the needs of students. They place students at the centre of all decisions. We recognise that it is the people working in our schools with their communities who can make the best decisions to ensure students get what they need

5 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU Quality teaching is the most significant in-school factor influencing student outcomes. The best quality teaching happens in school communities that are empowered and inspired to make local decisions to meet local needs.

6 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU IMPLICATIONS FOR SCHOOLS Schools will have more say over the mix and selection of their staff. Schools will choose how they fill at least every second vacancy once incentive transfers and Aboriginal employment applicants are placed.

7 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU There will be a streamlined performance management process for all staff. There will be clear role statements linked to professional standards and expectations. Principal salary and school classification will be linked to school complexity and student numbers. There will be one comprehensive school plan. The annual report will report on the achievement of school targets and student learning outcomes.

8 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU Leaders will be better prepared with professional learning and leadership credentials before they apply for leadership positions. There will be an increased capacity to share teaching, administrative and leadership positions across schools. There will be a reduced number of returns – a range of data can will be gathered directly.

9 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU How long will this change take? This will be a gradual transition. Some elements of the reform will take effect almost immediately. Others will take longer. The time frame for full implementation is 3 – 5 years

10 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU Is Local Schools, Local Decisions and Empowering Local Schools the same? Local Schools, Local Decisions is a state government commitment for educational reform in all public schools. The Empowering Local Schools National Partnership is a federally funded program that required schools to apply for participation. It empowers schools to make more local decisions and gives each school a grant of between $40, 000 and $50,000 to assist with the transition.

11 NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITIESWWW.DET.NSW.EDU.AU In addition, the schools will be part of a new Learning Management and Business Reform (LMBR) initiative which will provide schools with new tools to assist in planning, budgeting an reporting to maximise student learning outcomes. This program is for two years and schools will have to participate in a national evaluation.
