Notebooks for School Staff Program

Previously Teacher and Principal Notebook Program


The Notebooks for School Staff Program (the program) has been in place since 1999 and continues to evolve in alignment with the Department's requirements.

The program aim is to enable all Victorian government schools an equitable provision of notebooks or allowances to allow for the digital delivery of the school curriculum.

The main objectives of the program are to:

  • provide opportunities for eligible schools to nominate for notebook provision
  • procure, deliver and asset manage program-provisioned notebooks over a 48 month life cycle
  • provide schools flexibility of choice via school-provisioned alternate-provision allowances and timely reimbursements.

Participation in the program is optional for all Victorian government schools.

Under the program, teachers, principals and education support (ES) staff will not be required to provide a personal financial contribution to the cost of the notebook allocated to them.

The program operates a standard 48 month life cycle on all notebook provisions.
