Planning for new or significantly changed non-government schools

The non-government schools planning policy (2017)

On 10 July 2017 the responsibilities under the non-government schools planning policy (2017) (PDF 121KB) were transferred to the Education Standards Board by the Minister for Education and Child Development.

The policy aims to ensure that reasonable planning requirements are applied to all proposals to establish a new or significantly changed non-government school that is seeking State Government funding to support their operation.

The non-government schools planning policy (2017) criteria align with the standards for registration and review of registration of schools in South Australia (PDF 148KB) (standards 1.2 and 2.11). Applications will be assessed using the standards.

Groups and organisations intending to seek registration for new or significantly changed non-government schools are invited to contact the Education Standards Board or phone 8226 1215.

External Relations will be responsible for the administration of funding approvals and monitoring compliance with school funding deeds.
