2019 School Council Elections

2019 School Council Elections

Each year school council elections take place in Term 1 and the process must be completed by 31 March.

There are three separate electorates within a school community:

  • Parent electorate
  • Department of Education and Training (DET) employee electorate
  • Student electorate.

The Parent electorate of the school includes each parent of a student of the school, other than those who are DET employees engaged in work at, and for, the school. A parent of a student of the school who is a DET employee, but does not work at and for the school, is included in the Parent electorate. Parent includes a guardian or person who is liable to maintain or has the actual custody of a student of the school.

The DET employee electorate of the school includes the principal of the school and DET employees engaged in work at, and for, the school.

All government schools with a Year 7 cohort and above are now required to have student members on council. The Student electorate of the school includes all students enrolled in Year 7 and above, at the school.

Please see below where you will find a link to the timeline for the election process and also a table (Schedule 4: Notice of Election and Call for Nominations) that shows the number of vacancies in each category.

If you wish to nominate for one of the vacancies please use one of the forms linked to this page. Please make sure you are using the appropriate form (Parent, DET or Student). You may self nominate or have someone else nominate you. Nomination forms are also available from the General Office on each Campus
