Independent Schools Victoria makes a significant contribution to the detailed examination of government and other policy areas related to education.
We make submissions to governments, to parliamentary committees and to education-related inquiries. We also prepare and publish issues papers and other reports on policy matters of particular interest to our diverse Member Schools, and on education more broadly.
The views and proposals articulated in our submissions, issues papers and reports will reflect our Vision, as we :
advocate for excellence in education
champion member schools
support quality education
protect the right of parents to choose where and how their children are educated.
In support of Member schools, we are committed to advancing education more broadly. We are members of the School Policy and Funding Advisory Council, made up of representatives of Independent, government and Catholic schools, which provides advice to the Victorian Minister for Education on regulatory, policy and funding issues affecting government and non-government schools. The Council usually meets once a term, and after each meeting it releases an Official Statement. You can read the latest Statement here.
