Staffing cooperation guide — introduction

The administration of government schools continues to be based upon the principle of self-management but with scope for cooperation with other schools.

This commitment to the principle of self-management in government schools enables a high degree of operational autonomy over human and financial resources at the school level. The accountability for the management of human and financial resources within a school rests with the principal within statewide legislative and policy guidelines.

Current staffing policy for Victorian government schools is designed to enable a school to more closely align its staffing profile to the educational needs of students. Schools are able to progressively build, or maintain, a staff team that can provide the best possible teaching and learning in the school. The key objective of staffing policy is to enable principals to select the best available staff to best meet the educational needs of students.
