School Council News

One of the key functions of school councils is to contribute to the development of the broad vision and direction for the school as part of the school strategic planning process. Strategic planning is the process of reflecting on past performance, establishing future directions and deciding what will constitute success.

In other words, it involves the school community considering these questions:

  • Where have we been
  • Where do we want to go?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we know if we have been successful?

The Department of Education has developed a Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO). FISO has the following components: an Improvement Model with four state-wide priorities, 16 dimensions including six evidence-based high-impact Improvement Initiatives; and Improvement Cycle and Improvement Measures.

The school will shortly be undertaking a pre-review self-evaluation. Part of this process will involve community consultation, so look out for a survey where you can contribute to discussions about:

  • How well the school is meeting the community’s expectations?
  • Where the school could improve performance?
  • What the school’s priorities should be going forward?

The survey email will be sent to all of our families and everyone is encouraged to participate. This information will be collated and inform the school’s self-evaluation and new Strategic Plan direction.
