Conditions of compliance

If you have to comply, what do you have to do?

The Vic DET census includes questions on the total number of students attending the school, the number of full time students, the number of part time students, the age of ungraded students and the number of Full Fee Paying Overseas Students.

Schools must complete and submit the census in the prescribed form by the specified date.

What are the consequences if you don’t comply?
