All govenment schools in Victoria has a school council. They are legall constituted bodies that are given powers to set the key direction of a school within statewide guidelines. in doing this, a school council is able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students.
A school council's constituting order specifies the total size of the council and the number of members in each category.
Most members of a school council are parents of children at the school. A smaller number of members are Department employee members, usually school staff.
Government schools with a student cohort of year 7 and above will have two student positions on council. Other members can be co-opted by the council within the limits of the constituting order.
A parent who works at the school for more than eight hours per week, either as an ongoing employee or on a fixed-term of ninety days or more will be in the Department employee category.
A parent member of council whose child no longer attends the school is no longer eligible to serve as a parent member. However if the child finishes school at the end of a normal school year the parent may continue on the council until the next election, at the beginning of the next year.
If a year 12 student, who has been elected to the student member category, has completed the normal school year and ceases to be enrolled at the school, that student may continue to be a member of the council until the next council election, at the beginning of the next year.
Elected and co-opted councillors both have the same roles and responsibilities.
School councils must include these positions:
Other positions may include:
Student members are ineligible to hold any office bearer position.
The school council election process for all government schools in Victoria must be commenced no earlier than the school year commencement date and completed on or before 31st March for the Parent, DET employee and Student member categories.
