Member Schools are self-managed but Independent Schools Victoria assists members to maintain high standards of governance and business management.
Regular briefings on governance are held for:
- board and council members
- heads of school
- business managers
- other senior staff.
There is a continuing flow of information describing and updating good business management and educational practice. Member schools are surveyed to ensure their needs are met.
The Independent Schools Victoria Governance Handbook has been updated. To purchase a copy contact the Executive Support Manager, Kate Anderson or (03) 9825 7230.
Member School Board Members and management have access to Across the Board – Governance guidelines for Independent schools. The material was produced by Dibbs Abbott Stillman Lawyers with input from SACS Consulting, Noel Waite of the Waite Group and Independent Schools Victoria board members and Secretariat.
