Background

The NSW Government launched the Local Schools, Local Decisions education reform in March 2012. This is the most significant and far reaching reform in school education in NSW in a century.

It’s about making sure that students are placed at the centre of all decision making. It gives schools more local authority to make decisions that best meet the needs of all students, while maintaining a strong and equitable public education system.

Local Schools, Local Decisions works across 5 key areas to build a more dynamic public education system:

  • managing resources
  • staff in our schools
  • working locally
  • reducing red tape
  • making decisions.
