Split-Site/Multi-Site Allowance (Reference 33)

Split-site/multi-site allowances are paid to designated primary, P-12 and secondary colleges which are not being funded for a separate enrolment linked base (Reference 2). Specialist and Language Schools are also eligible if applied criteria is satisfied.

A school may be eligible for the allowance if:

  • it is a specialist school operating on sites that are more than one kilometre apart (not including base rooms) or
  • the configuration of the school represents a historical merging of 2 or more schools or
  • it has classrooms operating on 2 or more sites, for example, separated by at least a road or an oval (not including alternative settings attached to schools).

Note:

  1. Includes P–12 colleges that have more than one primary school site.
  2. For approved secondary colleges formed through the merger of secondary colleges on adjacent sites, this item is replaced by a $61,056 site allowance.

Funding is calculated at the Indicative cycle and allocated through cash funding.
