SCHOOL COUNCIL

School councils play an important role in Victorian government schools. The department has developed a range of polices, guidelines and resources to support existing and prospective school councillors to understand their roles, responsibilities and school council processes.

ABOUT SCHOOL COUNCILS

All government schools in Victoria have a School Council that operates under a legislative framework within the Victorian government school system with particular functions in setting and monitoring the school’s direction.

Being a member of our School Council is a rewarding and challenging experience. Our School Council partners with our school leaders to assist with the efficient governance of the school and make sure decisions are made in the best interest of our students.

Members need to understand their role, the powers and functions of council, and how they are required to work with the principal and the school community.

The term of office for membership is two years.
